Monstera dubia, a native to Central and South America, is a beautiful, less-common species of Monstera with striking leaf patterns and a unique growth habit. When growing on a wood plank, Monstera dubia exhibits a shingling behavior similar to its natural growth pattern in the wild where it attaches to tree trunks.


Monstera dubia starts out with small, heart-shaped leaves that are half green and half silver giving a stunning mosaic look. As it climbs and matures, the leaves grow larger, become more elongated, and may start to show fenestrations (natural holes). When provided with a wooden plank to grow on, the plant will send out aerial roots and tightly cling to the support, mimicking its natural growth in the wild.

Care Guide:

  1. Light: Monstera dubia thrives in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, whereas too little light can inhibit growth and the development of leaf patterns.

  2. Water: Water when the top 1-2 inches of the soil are dry. Overwatering can lead to root rot. Keeping the wooden plank moist can help the plant attach better and grow its aerial roots.

  3. Humidity: Monstera dubia prefers higher humidity, above 60% if possible. Use a humidifier, mist the plant, or place it on a pebble tray filled with water to increase humidity.

  4. Temperature: Ideal temperatures for Monstera dubia are between 65 and 80°F (18-27°C). Avoid drastic temperature changes and cold drafts.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix, such as a mix of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed the plant with a balanced houseplant fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilizing in fall and winter.

  7. Support: A wooden plank provides a natural support for Monstera dubia to cling and grow on. As the plant grows, you may need to gently guide it or secure it to the support with plant ties.

  8. Pruning: Pruning is generally not needed unless you want to control the plant's size or remove unhealthy growth.

  9. Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years or when the plant outgrows its pot. You may need to provide a larger wooden plank when repotting.

  10. Propagation: Monstera dubia can be propagated from stem cuttings. Ensure each cutting has at least one node and root it in water or moist soil.

Caution: Monstera dubia is toxic if ingested. Keep it away from pets and children.

Remember, every plant is unique, and your Monstera dubia might need slightly different care based on the specific conditions in your home. Monitor your plant and adjust care routines as needed.
