Monstera Maintenance

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿฅฐ Yesterday was growing season maintenance time & my beautiful monstera had LOTS of work to be done. Roots growing thru the drainage, old leaves to prune, removed the self watering stake, added new soil & we re-upped the climbing situation!!! So much for one day, so I know sheโ€™s not going to be happy, but it was definitely needed. As you can see from the pictures, thereโ€™s a lot going on (but not a lot of fenestration๐Ÿ™ƒ) Iโ€™m hoping her spa day will help to make her stronger with bigger foliage and more fenestrations๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ
If you guys have any tips for me Iโ€™m all ears!!
happy planting๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒฟ

#WetheWild enrich powder!!! It will do WONDERS on your already amazing Monstera but that would be my top recommendation to anyone w a monstera!!
@elisenavidad good to know! I thought I just needed more light. I have my plant outside hoping for the best. But I will try the we the wild. I have been meaning to order.
@nellz4estfairyz if there isnโ€™t a lot of fenestration on your new leafs then thatโ€™s a good indicator you need to give them more light!

But yes yes yes the Enrich powder is insane! Iโ€™m obsessed
@elisenavidad I have a new leaf pushing out now so Iโ€™m interested to see if I get any penetration at all. Iโ€™ve had the plant from a cutting for about a year. And gradually over several months, I keep moving it to spots with more and more light. Clearly the more light it gets the happier it is so far. Itโ€™s only been outside on my covered porch for about a month now. It gets a little tiny bit of direct sunlight but mostly indirect light so I think this is probably the best spot I can put it in. But it will have to come inside, come September or October.
@nellz4estfairyz oh Iโ€™m so excited to see the progress!! She sounds happy
