Monstera Growth from Cutting in Karlstad, Sweden

Monstera Deliciosa plants are extremely popular houseplants, not just because of their iconic leaf shape, but also because they are quite easy to care for.  They need relatively bright light and only need to be watered once a week – luckily, they are also very forgiving of their owner’s mistakes.  This Monstera was grown from a cutting which had no leaves whatsoever and in just a year is now a thriving plant.  This was grown in Sweden, and the owner shares many more growth stories on instagram @ekholm_greenplants.
