Plant the Monstera using organic planting mix in a pot that drains well.
Water this houseplant when the soil is dry down about 2 inches. This plant is quite drought tolerant. You can determine soil moisture with your finger. Stick it down into the soil. The frequency of watering will vary depending on many factors but check your plant about once per week. If it is dry go ahead and water. If it is wet, hold off and check again in a few days. A thorough watering when your plant is beginning to dry is best versus watering a little bit more often. Never let this plant sit in water. Empty the saucer after watering if water remains after 30 minutes or so.
Feed Monstera deliciosa 2 to 3 times per year with a balanced slow-release fertilizer.
Wipe dusty or dirty leaves gently with a moist cloth. Remove any dead or dying leaves to keep your plant looking good. Cut them all the way back to the soil with scissors, a knife, or pruning shears. While this plant rarely has issues with pests, plants kept outside can occasionally encounter insect problems. Neem oil is very safe and works great for treating insects on this plant.
