- Description: Native to the tropical forests of Central and South America, these plants have glossy, heart shaped leaves which develops its unique splits in its maturity.

How To Take Care Of Your Monstera
The Monstera Deliciosa loves bright, indirect sunlight in the warmer seasons (spring and summer). During the colder seasons (fall and winter) they prefer direct sunlight. Pro Tip: If the leaves start to turn yellow or look burnt, then the plant is getting too much sun and needs to be moved to a spot with less sun. On the other hand, if the leaves are not developing the slits that they are known for, then your plant is not getting enough sunlight and needs to be moved to a sunnier spot.
Monsteras love to be watered thoroughly, just ensure that the top inch of the soil is dry in between watering.
Monsteras love to grow and they grow quickly given the proper environment! For a big lucious plant, plant them in a larger pot and repot them often to allow them to grow as they please.
Monsteras are toxic to pets.
How To Take Care Of Your Philodendron
Philodendrons thrive in medium to bright indirect light but can also tolerate low light as well.
Philodendrons like the top 2 inches of their soil to be dry before watering (usually every week or so depending on your light conditions), so make sure you do not let it stand in water with over watering.
Philodendrons like warmer temperatures with higher humidity, so we recommend giving it a mist or 2 every week!
