    Descriptif de la plante

    Le mot de Rayon de Serre

    The Monstera deliciosa is the ultimate decorative houseplant. Often confused with Philodendrons, it is sometimes named split-leaf philodendron, it is not a member of this family

    This Monstera deliciosa is a very vigorous liana, with aerial roots that need to be channeled through solid supports. In Mexican forests, it clings to the trunks of trees and lives in their shade, so it needs light but no direct sunlight. The more it grows, the more indented its foliage becomes, as it creates holes in its leaves to let light through to the leaves below: its beauty comes from this, as do amusing nicknames like "Swiss cheese plant".

    Its surprising cone-shaped fruit, reminiscent of a pineapple, is not only edible but delicious, hence the name "deliciosa" and its nickname "poor man's pineapple". Once ripe (which can take up to a year!), this strange pineapple can be eaten fresh or in jams or jellies, and its taste evokes a subtle blend of guava, pear and banana.

    So, whether you grow it as a trellised or hanging plant, this Monstera deliciosa will quickly find its place in your home!

    Growing tips

    Repotting

    Repotting

    When you receive your plant, repot it in a pot slightly larger than the bucket, which must be well pierced. Avoid pot covers which prevent residual water from draining away and encourage fungal diseases. Choose a fine potting soil, ideally with added perlite or sand to lighten the substrate (do not use garden soil or acidic soil such as heather). Then plan two repottings per year (spring and autumn), gradually increasing the size of the pot and adapting it to the size of the root network (the roots must have room, but not too much as the plant must be able to dry out its substrate between waterings). This avoids having to add fertilizer, which always risks burning the fragile roots of the plants and making the plant wither as soon as the fertilizer is stopped.

    Watering

    Watering

    Moderate watering: watering should be copious (the whole root ball should be wet), but wait until the substrate has dried deeply before watering again (you can stick your finger in the soil: as long as you feel moisture, do not water). Your plant will recover better from a lack of water than from an excess of water. Always water at the base of the plant, and do not mist it, because stagnant water in the armpit of the leaves favors cryptogamic diseases. If your atmosphere is too dry, put bowls of water nearby (above radiators for example), so that evaporation humidifies the air.

    For an indoor planting

    For an indoor planting

    A true houseplant, place it in a warm and bright place, but avoid direct sun.

    For an outdoor planting

    For an outdoor planting

    This plant is not frost and/or cold resistant and should not be planted outside except in limited parts of Southern Europe.

    Pruning

    Pruning

    This plant is very easy to prune, which will make it branch out.

    Fertilizer

    Fertilizer

    Our plants are grown naturally, without chemical fertilizers, so we advise you to repot them regularly (twice a year) rather than adding fertilizer.

    In case of pest attack

    In case of pest attack

    If your plants are under attack by aphids or other pests, the best way to control them is by hand. Change their soil, remove as many undesirables as possible by hand and then shower your plants with a strong stream of water to eliminate any eggs that may be present. Spray them (insist on the underside of the leaves) with liquid black soap diluted in water. Repeat the operation several times at a few days interval. Take them outside in good weather, rain, sun and wind will kill most of the aggressors!
