This plant is not recommended for beginners.
If you do manage to get your hands on a monstera albo, know this: variegated monsteras can be tricky to care for. The beautiful white coloring means that these plants have less chlorophyll than regular monsteras, which means they’ll have a harder time converting sunlight to energy.
Here’s how to ensure that your monstera albo cutting has the best chance of survival and growing up into a big, beautiful plant!
Plenty of light
Because of the lack of chlorophyll, your monstera albo will need lots of bright, indirect sunlight. Place near a bright window that faces south or east but where it will never be in the sun’s direct rays. If you can’t provide enough natural light, you may need to supplement with a grow light.
The right soil
Make sure to plant your cutting in a pot with drainage and use a rich, loamy soil. Try a light, indoor potting mix with a few handfuls of peat moss mixed in.
