Plant Care

Botanical name - Epipremnum Pinnatum

Origin - Humid regions of Southeast Asia

 

This is a rare member of the well known Monstera family. Traditionally a climber like the other members and also an easy care kind of plant. I love his ribbed green wrinkled leaves. 

Bright Indirect Light

I thrive in areas of bright indirect light. But please keep me away from harsh direct sunlight as this will scorch my leaves. If you put me in a darker spot I will be more prone to root rot and overwatering problems. Although I will tolerate it change your watering habits accordingly. 

 

Infrequent Watering

Allow the top third of the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Why not pop your finger in to check the moisture level. If you've put me in a darker spot allow half of my soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot occurring. 

 

Care Tips

Average room humidity is great for me. Be careful not to mist me too much as it can build up mildew and cause rot. 

Root rot is the most common problem. If you suspect this, you may see yellowing leaves, then it could be that my soil is waterlogged. Why not carefully take me out of my pot and inspect the roots. If they are yellow tinged and looking good then I'm doing well. If you find they are brown and mushy we have a problem. 

Fun Facts

I can trail or climb. You can use sticky picture hooks to promote longer vines and make a wall feature of me. Why not give it a go.
