Monsteras can grow into giants: what fertilizer to use to nourish the plant

Julia PeschanskayaLife

Monstera is a large tropical plant with beautiful shiny, dark green leaves that can adorn any home. It is a low-maintenance potted plant, and with proper care, it can grow up to five meters in height.

However, it is essential to fertilize the monstera promptly to strengthen it and protect it from diseases and pests. OBOZREVATEL has found an effective way to do this.

First, you need to know how to properly cultivate the plant at home. The ideal location for Monstera is where it receives bright, indirect sunlight. Regular watering of the plant is also crucial, but excessive moisture can harm it.

Watering should be done when the soil is dry. If there are water droplets on the leaves of the potted plant, it is a sign of excessive moisture, and this is how the plant gets rid of the excess water.

Fertilizers are a necessary part of Monstera's development. Proper fertilization is what allows the leaves to grow lush and large. You can prepare these solutions yourself using readily available ingredients:


Cut banana peels into small pieces and place them in a one-liter jar. Then, cover them with warm water and let it sit for a day.


Boil water with parsley roots. Let the liquid boil for 5 minutes, then allow the mixture to cool before using it to water the potted plant.


Brew black tea and let it steep. This will also help strengthen the plant and provide it with essential nutrients.

Be cautious when fertilizing the monstera because excessive use of fertilizers can harm it. Mix the solutions with water in a one-to-one ratio and water the plant once a month.
