The Monstera Punctulata is virtually an indoor tree; the plant may grow up to 20 feet in a pot, but its practical interior height is seven to nine feet. The Monstera Punctulata thrives in humidity and indirect sunshine, so if you have a south-facing window, you should be fine.
Keep the soil slightly damp when watering, as overwatering is one of the reasons why this plant dies quickly. It’s also simple to maintain; simply removing leaves from dead plants or applying leaf shine or wood polish restores its luster.
Monstera is one of the simplest tropical plants to cultivate indoors. It features a bamboo-like brown stem and tall, glossy leaves. A Monstera can sprout two leaves at a time and can grow to be 4′ long. The plant enjoys bright indirect light and will grow under fluorescent lights, but it can also be placed near a south-facing window that receives indirect sunlight for approximately 10 hours each day.
Too much spraying or misting of the leaves can cause the surface to develop black spots, which can grow if left untreated. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings when growing Monstera, but do not let it go fully dry.
