Caring for a Monstera Deliciosa (also called Swiss cheese plant) in mineral substrate requires special measures to ensure that the plant remains healthy and happy.

Here are a few care tips:

  1. Watering : Make sure that the substrate is never permanently wet. Allow the substrate to dry slightly between waterings. Only water when the top layer of the substrate is dry. We recommend watering via the water tank.
  2. Light : The Monstera Deliciosa needs bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight as this can cause leaf burn. A window with curtains or blinds that filter the light is ideal.
  3. Temperature and humidity : Keep the room temperature between 18°C ​​and 26°C. The Monstera thrives in higher humidity, so it is helpful to spray the leaves with water occasionally.
  4. Fertilizing : During the growing season in spring and summer, fertilize the plant every 4 to 6 weeks with a balanced, liquid houseplant fertilizer or our AIRY Booster. In autumn and winter, you can reduce fertilization or stop fertilizing altogether.
  5. Caring for the vines : When the plant develops tendrils, you can carefully attach it to a support to help it climb. This will provide an attractive appearance and prevent the vines from breaking.
  6. Pests and diseases : Check the plant regularly for pests such as spider mites and aphids, as well as for signs of disease such as yellow leaves or brown spots. If problems occur, act early.

With these care instructions, your Monstera Deliciosa in mineral substrate should be healthy and thriving. Remember that every plant is individual and it may take some time to know exactly what its needs are. Observe it carefully and adjust the care accordingly.
