Getting a monstera to vine

I have several monstera deliciosa plants (thanks to a very healthy and productive mama plant that I can propagate from!). Theyโ€™re all doing well but Iโ€™m wondering how to get them to vine on a moss pole. Is this possible after theyโ€™ve already been happily growing in a pot without a pole?

I have seen them put out aerial roots (which would help them climb obvi) but they donโ€™t do it very often and not at all lately. Will they only do that when they know thereโ€™s something to climb? (Which comes first, the pole or the vine? lol)

Theyโ€™ll put out aerial roots with or without a pole. You can add a pole anytime. Position it as close to the โ€œbackโ€ of the plant at the base and attach the vine to the pole. I like to use velcro tape or florist pins ๐Ÿ’š
Iโ€™d love to know myself, since Iโ€™m crafting a pole for my philo micans today and hope she likes it ๐Ÿ˜…
