    • Monstera deliciosa, also known as the Swiss cheese plant or split-leaf philodendron, is a popular houseplant known for its large, lush leaves with unique fenestrations. Here are some care instructions specifically for Monstera deliciosa in the UK:

    • Light requirements: Monstera deliciosa thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a window that receives filtered sunlight or provide it with bright, indirect artificial light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.

    • Temperature: Monstera deliciosa prefers average to warm temperatures between 18°C and 27°C (65°F and 80°F). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but should not be exposed to temperatures below 10°C (50°F).

    • Humidity: Monstera deliciosa appreciates higher humidity levels, which can be a challenge in UK homes, especially during winter months. Increase humidity by misting the leaves with water regularly or using a humidifier. Placing the plant on a tray with water and pebbles can also help to create a humid microclimate around the plant.

    • Watering: Water your Monstera deliciosa when the top inch of soil feels dry. It is important to provide regular but moderate watering, allowing the soil to partially dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

    • Soil: Plant your Monstera deliciosa in well-draining soil that retains some moisture. A mixture of potting soil, peat moss, and perlite or orchid bark works well. Avoid using heavy soils that retain too much water.

    • Fertilization: Feed your Monstera deliciosa with a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging for the correct dosage.

    • Pruning: As your Monstera deliciosa grows, it may develop long aerial roots and produce large leaves. Prune any yellow or damaged leaves and trim back excessively long vines to maintain a neat appearance. You can also trim the plant to encourage bushier growth.

    • Support: Monstera deliciosa can grow quite large and may need support as it matures. Use a moss pole or trellis to provide stability and give the aerial roots something to cling to.
