Hello, Is it okay to grow my monstera plant in just water? If so, what is the proper way to take care of it
#Monstera
2” pot without drainage

You can. It will have the same light requirements. Just tap water won’t be enough. You want to look into hydroponics so it will get all the nutrients it needs.
Yep! Just look into either hydroponics fertilizer like @Plantgirl56 said or a water soluble fertilizer.
@BuffTarbush First off welcome to Greg! Just be careful watering it since your pots doesn’t have drainage. You can check it with your finger but sticking your index finger in to the second knuckle, if it still feels moist hit the snooze button, if it feels dry go ahead and water it. I use Happy Happy Houseplants food/fertilizer with every watering. It has really made a difference in all my plants.

@KikiGoldblatt hi! I’m very new to plants, I’m not sure what you mean by sticking my index finger into the buckle ?
@KikiGoldblatt here’s a closer picture of my plant :)
Welcome to Greg, Lisandra! You can keep your Monstera in water, just be sure to change out the water occasionally (like every time Greg suggests you water- change the water). There is fertilizer you can get for your plant to give it the nutrients it would normally get from soil.

I don't think Kristy realized you wanted to keep your plant in water. πŸ˜‰

You can also look into leca if you're feeling adventurous!
@sarahsalith thank you ! I’m just nervous about it I just don’t want to kill my plant lpl
