Variegated Monstera

Variegated Monstera Care Guide


Variegated Monstera prefers bright indirect light to partial shade. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves and cause them to yellow or develop brown patches. If the plant doesn't receive enough light, its variegation may fade, so ensure it gets adequate, indirect light.


Water the Variegated Monstera when the top 2-3 inches of the soil feel dry. Allow excess water to drain away to prevent root rot. During winter or cooler months, reduce watering frequency as the plant's growth slows down.


Maintain high humidity levels, ideally between 60-80%. Use a humidifier, pebble tray, or mist the leaves occasionally to increase humidity, especially in dry indoor environments.


Keep the Variegated Monstera in a warm environment with temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or extreme temperature fluctuations.


Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a fertilizer higher in phosphorus to promote variegation. Skip fertilizing in winter when growth slows down.


Variegated Monstera is toxic if ingested and can cause irritation to pets and humans. Keep it out of reach of children and pets.

Additional Care Information

Use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging and maintain good root health. Provide support like a moss pole or trellis for the Variegated Monstera to climb and grow upward, if desired. Regularly prune the plant to manage its size and promote bushy growth.


Yellow Leaves: Indicates overwatering, underwatering, or low humidity. Adjust your watering routine, check soil moisture, and monitor humidity levels. Leaf Browning: Can be caused by direct sunlight, low humidity, or inconsistent watering. Adjust the plant's light exposure, increase humidity, and maintain a consistent watering routine. Pest Infestation: Variegated Monstera can be susceptible to common houseplant pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Regularly inspect the plant for signs of pests and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil as needed.
