A cute name for a cute plant and so called due to the (vague?) resemblance of the leaves to that of a cheeky monkey.

A close relative of the Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa), the Philodendron Monkey Mask is often also referred to as Philodendron or Monstera Obliqua, however a true Obliqua is more hole than leaf and nowhere near as attractive as this little chap.

Monstera adansonii is easy to care for so long as it has moist, warm conditions.

Monstera adansonii - Philodendron Monkey Mask Care & Info Guide

Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but will tolerate moderate shade. Avoid direct sunlight.

Water: Water when the soil has started to dry out.

Temperature: Monstera like warm conditions from 18-27°C. Anything lower than this will reduce the plant's growth rate. It will tolerate 12°C and above but avoid cold draughts.

Humidity: Happy with average to high humidity levels. Cannot cope in dry air situations.

Feed: Feed once a month with a balanced fertiliser during the growing period. View Plant Nutrition

Care Tips: Wipe the leaves occasionally to remove accumulated dust. Leaves do tear and bruise easily, giving the plant a shabby chic appearance rather than a pristine look. Remove any damaged leaves as necessary.

Height and Growth Rate: Use a moss pole to support the plant (the roots will cling to this for support) or cut back if it gets too big. Slow to moderate growth, but depends upon the conditions.

Toxicity: Leaves are poisonous, keep away from pets and children.

Origin: Mexico and Central America.
