About: Indoor Care
Position the Monstera 'Thai Constellation' in an area with medium to bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight should be avoided to prevent damage to the delicate variegated leaves.
Maintain a comfortable temperature range between 60-85°F (15-30°C) to ensure optimal growth, avoiding sudden temperature fluctuations.
Allow the top half of the soil to dry out before watering. Adjust the watering frequency based on your space's humidity and temperature.
Create a moderately humid environment to promote growth. Regular misting or utilizing a humidity tray can help maintain optimal moisture levels.
Feed your Monstera 'Thai Constellation' with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) to support its vigorous growth.
Consider repotting every 2-3 years or when the plant outgrows its current pot. Use a well-draining soil mix to ensure healthy root growth.
Monitor for pests like mealybugs or spider mites. If detected, gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth and treat with a natural insecticidal soap.
Exercise caution as the Monstera 'Thai Constellation' is considered slightly toxic, especially to cats, dogs, and humans.
