Common ailments of the Monstera Deliciosa Variegata plant
Yellow leaves can be a sign of the plant to tell you it has given too much water. In this case we advise you to give a little less water each time than you did before. Are the leaves yellow on the bottom of the Monstera plant? Then it could just as well be old age of the lower leaves. The lowest leaves are the ones that grew first. So they will also be the one to die first. With the right care, new leaves will grow from the middle instead.
Curly, dry leaves
Curled and dry leaves can be a sign of too little water. In this case, you can feel into the soil with your fingers to see if it is really dry down here. If this is the case, you can water your plants a little more each time you water them. Please note: the monstera’s leaves grow up in a curly shape. So it could also just be the growth process of new leaves that have not yet fully developed.
Mould on the potting soil
Is there mould on the potting soil? No worries, this is actually a good sign! Mould can already be in the potting soil. Potting soil consists of a large part of naturally decomposed material. A warm living room and frequently watering the plant can bring the present mould to life. This may look a little dirty, but it is actually very good for the plant. Why? The plant gets extra nutrients from the mould to continue growing nicely; totally for free!
