@ChefsOasis I don’t see yellow leaves. I see the stem has some yellow where a leaf sprouted from. That does turn yellow and then dries up. Smaller lower leaves also turn yellow and die off as the plant grows.
I am so sad I saw it before I could scroll away. Those things terrify me!! I lived in Fl for three years and hated it…the only thing I liked were the plants and pool…
@ChefsOasis I am sooo afraid of snakes 🐍 I will run and scream like a little baby away from them and go get someone to kill it or whatever. Now you have gotten me afraid to even go near my Monsteras. πŸ˜‚
I meant to take a pix of one yellow leaf hiding amongst the big leaves this morning, to post here and ask whats wrong cz it looks odd… bt instead i saw this snake sleeping like a baby on top!!
When rain started pouring, jst nw, snake crawled away and hid underneath the roots of monstera plant like it lives there??? Ohmyy!
Does it mean its the pest causing the discoloration of my leaf? wow!! #snakewatchingallday 🐍
i cnt even get the hose to water my plants… thankful it starts raininggggβ˜”οΈ
Notice the small yellow leaf tucked inside the bigggg leaves below in the picture
Oh heck no. I’d have to open the window and pour water on the monstera that way. I’d be terrified to go near it ever again
It's probably a rat snake 🐍 completely harmless and beneficial
@KDkat3 thanks kadie, will try to take a pix of that yellow leaf when i get the courage to get closer to monstera plant safely…

re: the snake, i dunno how n why its there underneath? Looks like it lives there? Ugh! This is my fav plant!! Darn!!
Oh no!!! He’s good! Probably a rat snake or garden snake and will eat bugs!!!! They can’t bite and aren’t dangerous.
I wish I had little snake friends on my plants πŸ₯Ί
Welp, I’d have to move πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Eastern Ribbon snake. Completely harmless.
β€œSnake plant”
Oh my goodness
As terrifying as he is remember he is way may scared of you then you are of him. He’s eating all those bugs that would eat your plant… look the other way and forget about it, he will move on…
I love snakes. Looks like a little garter snake. Perfectly harmless and will help control critters around the place.
What a cute lil snake πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• beautiful! I agree it looks like an Eastern Ribbon snake, they are non venomous. By the way your Monstera is gorgeous! πŸŒΏπŸ’•
I would have been terrified lol. I live in Australia and Im still not used to them 😭
😳😳🫣
@KikiGoldblatt πŸ˜‚
@planthoe40 neighbor said its called garter snake?
@angi 🀣
@ChefsOasis still harmless and cute

@LuxuryMint ohthankyouuuu! I repotted it 3x before i decided to hav it thrive outdoor cz it wont stop growing!!! One leaf alone grew bour 34”!!
I wish I could have one that would thrive outside like that, they look so amazing when they get big. I lived in Florida for a few months and it's ideal for large foliage plants. Now I'm in the UK...β„οΈπŸŒ¨οΈπŸŒ§οΈ
He's just a lil guy
Omg I would catch him and love him πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ
