Variegated Monstera Propagation Part two

Propagation of Variegated Monstera – Part two

This is the follow up post of a variegated monstera which was grown from a single leaf cutting. This is part two of three, so here is the links to the other parts: part one, part three: repotting.

If you are looking to grow a variegated monstera, you will notice that they aren’t exactly cheap.  To make sure that they don’t die, the best thing to do is buy a self watering pot so that the water supply is consistent and reliable for the plant.  It’s recommended that you get a cheaper pot, because if the roots grow too much, you will need to cut the actual plastic to get the roots out unharmed (that’s exactly what had to happen with this one).  Here is a link to the exact one used here.

We have an updated listing of variegated monstera plants for sale here.
