For all those who lost their MV caresheet and also for all of you who want to become a MV parent and want to be prepared, I am posting here the text of the caresheet:
Your Monstera Variegata likes
Very modest watering
She likes it when the soil dries out completely in between watering. There is also no golden rule like “once a week”, it all depends on her and the environment she is in, so you will have to adopt her rhythm rather than submitting her to your own watering schedule 😉
Her big leaves like a lot of light, but no direct sun. So don’t put her close to a south facing window
Moisture in the air helps keep her leaves healthy. It will also avoid the white from getting brown. We recommend to aim for +60% humidity.
This plant loves to be snug in the pot. She will be fine in this pot until repotting season in spring, even though it might look like she is growing out of it
Your Monstera Variegata DISlikes
If the soil is not dry, don’t water her. Use your hands to feel if it’s watering time, not a moisture meter. When the pot is light, water, if not, don’t 😉
When water keeps sitting on the leaves, these will get damaged, and all the pretty white will get brown.
She catches a cold quite easily, so make sure she is not standing in a draft
After all the shipping stress she endured, please avoid any extra stress caused by repotting or moving her around a lot
