Looking for a Monstera? ¡Sí, Señor!
Say buenos dias to your new amigo, Alfredo! The Monstera is a tropical aroid, which comes to us all the way from Mexico, the land of sun and cerveza! The holes and fenestrations in his leaves make this amigo one of the most popular plants in the world and the ultimate addition to your urban jungle oasis. Not to mention, Alfredo will always pose for a selfie - especially on Mondays.
What Makes the Monstera so special?
Also known as the Swiss Cheese Plant, Alfredo is #instafamous when it comes to the houseplant world. Thanks to his good looks and easy care, he has stolen the hearts of many beginner plant parents and experts alike. To stay in Alfredo's good graces, we recommend bright indirect light, well draining soil, and a moss pole for his aerial roots to latch onto. Trendy plants don't need to be tricky! Just keep him away from cold drafts, pets and young kiddos, and you'll have a happy home.
Monstera Survival Guide:
The Monstera plant grows well indoors, just as long as you give it the right amount of tender love and care. Not only is this amigo a social media influencer, but he's good for your health too! When it comes to purifying the air in your space, you could say Alfredo's a pro. Just look at those giant leaves! Did you know... the leaves of your plants have stomata, which are little openings that take in CO2 and emit oxygen as a residual product. Pretty neat, hey? This makes the rule of thumb here fairly simple: the larger the leaf the more oxygen you breathe! ¡Arriba Alfredo!
If you want to buy a Monstera plant to elevate your space, you can choose from a few different varieties. There's always the popular Monstera Deliciosa that we all know and love, or perhaps the Monkey Mask Plant (Monstera Adansonii) that can grow into a beautiful climbing or trailing plant.
