If you are trying to get your Monstera Andansonii to grow to a longer length and aren’t getting the results you want yet, don’t stress. It can take some time for the plant to start trailing. If you want to encourage this water regularly and keep in the same place.

Just be sure it gets a lot of light and pay attention to watering it. I try to make sure, since I get water from the tap, to fill my jug that I use a few days before I water any of my plants..they seem to like it better.

This plant and I have had our fair share of fights but she always comes around with a new leaf. This kind of plant definitely does better with a pole to grow up but does okay without one. I currently keep this one in high humidity ~80% and around 6” away from grow lights and it’s doing well. I also add a layer about an inch deep of spagnum moss on top of the soil to keep it a little more humid

I bought mine off Etsy in winter and it was delayed so it came with some cold damage. Despite below freezing temperatures, she’s made a wonderful comeback and has one brand new leaf with another starting to unfurl. Very easy to grow and propping just involves nodes and water.

Got a propagated plant from a friend. When I got it, there were only two leaves, now has four with a new one unfurling. Be patient and give lots of humidity to leaves as they unfurl. This process is slow, but worth the wait. Have mine under a grow light.

Really dont know how to care for this plant. Thought it would be easier than the deliciosa but its not. This is my second plant. The first one died due to overwatering. Hope with the assistance of Greg the overwatering issue will be addressed. Will give it a 5 star rating if this one gives me big lush leaves.

My favorite plant! Looks fancy with its windowpane leaves, but propagates from a cutting like a pothos.

Climbs up a moss pole easily & lets you know when it’s feeling ignored. Easy to propagate in water & delightful to look at. A foliage winner!

By far my favorite plant. Is constantly pushing out new leaves, all my clippings seem to propagate in water just fine, and this plant is just multiplying. One of my easiest plants to care for as well!

So easy to take care of. Just water when soil is dry and mist every few days. I have in a northern window that gets indirect light and during summer humid cloudy days I put outside on the east

By the time I’m writing this, this Adansonii had been in the ground for only three months from propagated leaves, and already the leaves doubled in size. Looking forward to see how it goes!
