The Monstera Deliciosa 'Mint' is a unique and sought-after variety of the classic Monstera Deliciosa, known for its variegated, minty green patches on the leaves. Here's a comprehensive guide for caring for this distinctive plant:


  • Appearance: This plant features large, glossy, heart-shaped leaves with distinctive splits and holes, known as fenestrations. The 'Mint' variety is particularly prized for its variegated leaves, which exhibit patches or streaks of lighter green, resembling a minty hue.
  • Growth Pattern: It's a robust climber, capable of reaching substantial heights if given proper support. In indoor settings, its growth can be more contained, but it still becomes quite a statement piece due to its large, showy leaves.

Care Guide

  1. Light Requirements:

    • Prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the variegated parts of the leaves, while low light conditions can reduce the variegation.
    • A north or east-facing window is often ideal, providing ample light without the intensity of direct midday sun.
  2. Watering:

    • Water when the top inch or so of the soil feels dry. The Monstera Deliciosa 'Mint' prefers consistent moisture, but over-watering can cause root rot.
    • Use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging.
  3. Humidity and Temperature:

    • Enjoys a humid environment, similar to its native tropical rainforest habitat. Consider using a humidifier or placing the plant on a pebble tray with water.
    • Ideal temperatures range between 18°C to 27°C. Avoid exposure to temperatures below 15°C and draughts.
  4. Soil and Fertilisation:

    • A well-draining potting mix, ideally one enriched with peat moss or perlite, is suitable.
    • Fertilise monthly during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, liquid fertiliser. Reduce fertilising in autumn and winter.
  5. Pruning and Repotting:

    • Prune to control size and remove any yellow or damaged leaves. Pruning also encourages fuller growth.
    • Repot every 2-3 years or when the plant becomes root-bound. Increase the pot size gradually.
  6. Pest and Disease Management:

    • Keep an eye out for pests such as spider mites, scale, and mealybugs. Treat infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
    • Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent fungal issues.
  7. Propagation:

    • Propagate through stem cuttings that include at least one node. Root the cuttings in water or directly in soil.

Additional Tips

  • Variegation Care: The variegation can vary and sometimes revert to all green. To maintain variegation, ensure the plant receives adequate light.
  • Support: Consider installing a moss pole or trellis to support its climbing nature and encourage larger leaf growth.
  • Leaf Cleaning: Regularly clean the leaves to enhance photosynthesis and keep the plant looking its best.

By providing the right care and attention, your Monstera Deliciosa 'Mint' can thrive and become a stunning feature in your home or office. Remember to observe its responses to your care routine and adjust as necessary to keep it healthy and happy.
