Beautifully cut leaves, deep green, tropical-looking foliage, and easy-to-grow - all that characterizes this beautiful and modern house plant Monstera, also called split-leaf philodendron. It is one of the most attractive indoor plants, because it will fit into any interior and will be the center of attention. Read on to find out what it takes and how to choose the best soil for your Monstera to grow it strong and healthy.
What does Monstera need for living?
Warm indoor temperature between 68 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit, a pot - large and stable enough for the root system to grow, regular watering, pot with drainage, bright or filtered, indirect light is all that your Monstera plant wants. It just loves and grows significantly, if the soil is moist, aerated and well-draining. Note that the soil can not be soggy or overly wet, this will just cause a pack of problems, like root rot, pathogens, diseases and bacteria. Every indoor plant needs good air circulation in its roots system and using heavy and compact soil will stop root growth and block moisture from penetrating the soil.
Choose a professional-grade potting mix
When it comes to the annual replanting or just soil replenishment, it is worth choosing a potting mix, which will not only serve as an anchor, but will provide the necessary growth conditions for the roots of the houseplant. Potting soil should be porous, but water-retentive at the same time. If you truly care about your Monstera and other indoor plants at your home, choose a professional-grade potting mix instead of any other bag of soil.
