A Monstera Obliqua is really an extremely rare houseplant, which is also extremely rare in the wild. Until 1977, this beautiful and extremely special plant had only been observed 17 times in the wild! Today, the counter stands at 710 observations in the wild. In the wild, this plant grows quite rapidly at about 2.5 leaves per month, but when kept indoors this is limited to about 1 leaf per month during the growing season.
The most remarkable thing about this fascinating plant is that its leaves tend to be more hole than leaf! The holes can take up 90% of the leaf surface, which makes the leaves vulnerable.
The leaves of this Monstera Obliqua are beautiful, but they do have some requirements. The humidity has to be high at all times, as the leaves dry out quickly when the humidity is too low. With high humidity, we are talking about a humidity of 85% and higher. In terms of temperatures, this plant prefers temperatures between 21°C and 26°C degrees. It is also wise to provide this plant with an extra (artificial) light source, so that the plant can absorb as much light as possible to make as much energy as possible by means of photosynthesis. Yet care must be taken, for such a vulnerable plant as this one can also suffer from an excess of light.
Something special about this special plant is that the Monstera Obliqua produces 'stolons'. These are leafless stems, also known as offshoots, that grow horizontally across the ground until they find another tree/moss stick to climb against. In the wild they can grow up to 20 metres long!
If not kept in the right conditions, they can quickly attract insects. The most common pests on this type of monstera are white fly, mealy bugs, red spider mite and lice. If they are not treated quickly, this can damage the health of the plant.
