Climbing type aroid Care Guide (Monstera and Rhaphidophora)


Sunlight: Climbing aroids are rainforest understory plants, they thrive in shady locations like the inside of a home or under filtered light.

Substrate: Climbing aroids look best when they’re given a surface to climb, like a pole. They prefer to be grown in rich and well drained soil with generous amounts of fertilizer. Perlite and orchid bark are encouraged to be added to increase drainage.

Watering: Climbing aroids enjoy frequent watering but need the soil to dry between waterings.

Humidity: These plants can tolerate a wide range of humidity levels but they grow best when relative humidity is above 50%

Fertilizer: Solid pellet fertilizer and liquid fertilizer may be used in small quantities once a month to promote consistent growth.
