The variegated Monstera owes its popularity to the variegated (white) foliage. This variegation causes the variegated Monstera to be more vulnerable than a regular, all-green Monstera deliciosa. The plant is commonly nicknamed a ‘real diva’ and will require more attention than other plants. But if you take the time to properly care for the Monstera variegata, it will continue to grow beautifully!
Place the variegated Monstera in a light spot, in filtered sunlight. This spot will allow the plant to receive sufficient light, without running a risk of burnt leaves. Make sure the potting soil is always mildly moist, but not wet. We recommend placing a layer of hydro granules at the bottom of the pot, so it won’t matter if you accidentally overwater it. This is the best way of preventing root rot. It’s best to water the plant regularly, and to give small amounts of water each time. Just enough to moisten the potting soil. We also recommend regularly misting around the leaves to maintain a high humidity.
Do not repot the Monstera variegata within one month after delivery. It’s best to leave it be, allowing it time to get used to its new home. After a month has passed, you can very carefully repot it.
