Monstera adansonii, the Adanson's monstera, Swiss cheese plant, or five holes plant, is a species of flowering plant from family Araceae which is widespread across much of South America and Central America.
- Watering is the trickiest part of caring for Monsteras.
- They like consistently moist soil but don’t want to be soggy.
- They also like high humidity, which can especially be a challenge in winter, so consider using a humidifier.
- Yellowing leaves are a common issue and indicate that something about your watering schedule is off.
- Test the soil with a finger before you water: at least the top inch should be dry.
- On the flip side, make sure you’re not giving it so much water that the top layer of soil remains wet for several days at a time.
- Watering once a week should do the trick, though you might need to experiment with frequency based on the temperature and humidity in your home.
