The Monstera Deliciosa Albo is a beautiful and popular plant known for its unique white variegation on its leaves. Here are some care tips to keep your Monstera Deliciosa Albo healthy:
Monstera Deliciosa's prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, while too little light can cause your Albo's leaves to lose their variegation. Place your plant near a window with a sheer curtain or in a well-lit room.
Water your Monstera Deliciosa Albo only when the top inch or two of soil feels dry to the touch. Make sure to use a well-draining potting mix, as split leaf philodendrons such as the Albo do not like to sit in standing water. Over-watering can cause root rot and damage the plant.
The Monstera Deliciosa Albo prefers humidity around 60% which is a bit higher than most households provide. Keep your Albo in a more humid space such as a kitchen or bathroom, mist the leaves regularly, or place a humidifier near the plant in order to provide a more humid environment. This will help prevent the leaves from drying out and turning brown.
Fertilize your Deliciosa every month during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer. During the winter months, reduce fertilization to every other month.
Albos can be propagated through stem cuttings. Cut a stem with at least one node and place it in sphagnum moss or water until roots form. Then, transplant the cutting into a pot with well-draining aroid mix.
Following these care tips will help your Monstera Deliciosa Albo thrive and grow into a beautiful plant.
