How Do You Identify a Monstera Acuminata?
If you want to give your Monstera Acuminata the best care, you first need to identify it from other Monsteras.
Not sure how to tell one apart from the other? Then this guide is perfect for you. Learn exactly how to accurately identify one today.
How to identify young Monstera Acuminata
Young Monstera Acuminata is identified by their uniquely shaped leaves. These leaves are usually wider than long and have a deep notch in the center, resembling a heart shape.
The color of the leaves can vary from bright green to pale yellow or white. In addition, a young plant has larger and more pronounced veins.
The stem of a juvenile plant is typically thin and weak, with only a few aerial roots at the base.
How to identify mature Monstera Acuminata
As the plant matures, it forms a window-like pattern at the center. The leaves are oval to heart-shaped and can be up to 12 inches long and 8 inches wide.
They are dark green in color, although some varieties may also feature variegated or lighter colors. The veins of mature Monstera Acuminata are distinct and can trace a feathery pattern on the surface of the leaf.
As the plant ages, it should form a unique “holey” or perforated pattern in its leaves. Its leaves are smaller than the leaves of Monstera Adansonii.
A healthy stem structure of mature Monstera Acuminata is also distinctive. It displays multiple aerial roots throughout its length.
These aerial roots are usually thick and robust. The root system is also capable of anchoring the plant firmly in its pot or in the soil.
A matured Monstera Acuminata is also capable of producing fruits. The plant develops small berries and the fruiting spadix turns yellow.
Finally, mature species may also feature variegation in their leaves. They have light and dark green patches appearing in unique patterns.
This adds to the beauty of the plant and is a sign that it has reached maturity.
Monstera Acuminata Care and Growth Requirements
When it comes to taking care of Monstera Acuminata, some basic necessities should be considered so you get healthy plants. This includes:
These exotic rainforest plants hate direct sunlight. They climb using aerial roots to get light, just like they do in their native habitat.
That said, note that their lighting needs shouldn’t be overlooked.
For an optimal environment, grow Monstera Acuminata is exposed to bright to medium, bright indirect light and receives 8-10 hours of light each day.
If you can’t guarantee this, invest in an artificial grow light. Avoid direct sunlight at all costs, as it can burn the leaves and cause unsightly spots that won’t recover.
Also, never plant your Monstera in full shade. It’ll only disappoint both you and your plant.
Instead, find a warm spot that’s exposed to indirect or slightly filtered light.
One key sign that your plant may need more light is a lack of fenestration on mature leaves. The iconic split leaves that make this plant so beloved require ample light to form properly.
If you notice dark brown spots or yellowing of leaves, this could also indicate a lack of sunlight.
Is the soil taking too long to dry or your Monstera is growing slowly? This may also mean that your plant is not receiving enough light.
Finally, if your plant appears leggy or stretched out, this could be another sign that it needs more light to thrive. Be attentive to these indicators, and your plant will thrive in your care.
How to Maximize Light Exposure for your plant
- Every fortnight, rotate your indoor plants a quarter turn away from the light source. This will ensure that all sides of the plant get equal amounts of light.
- Use sheer curtains to cover the windows and diffuse the sunlight that is entering your home. This will reduce direct exposure while still allowing light in.
- Place your houseplants near the window, but be careful not to put them directly in front of it. Plants need a bit of distance from the window
- If you don’t have a window, try to find a well-lit spot like a patio, doorway, or balcony. Place your plants in these areas and they will still be able to get enough light to thrive.
- Position 4-5 ft from south-facing windows or east/westward-facing windows for morning/afternoon sun.
Just like in every plant, proper watering is essential when caring for the M.Acuminata plant. In this case, we recommend moderate watering.
Always ensure that the soil is moist but not waterlogged. But how do you know when it’s time to water?
It’s simple. Wait until the top 2 inches of the soil surface is dry.
To determine soil dryness, there are a few methods you can try, like the finger test or the poke-the-stick method. However, use a moisture meter for the most accurate results.
A reading of 3 on the meter indicates the soil is dry and ready for watering. During the active growing seasons of summer and spring, water once a week.
During winter, it’s best to water Monstera Acuminata once every two weeks or so since leaf growth slows or becomes dormant.
When watering your plant, make sure to water until the soil is completely saturated. This will ensure that your plant receives the proper amount of hydration.
As for the type of water to use, stick with rainwater or distilled water at room temperature. These options are gentle enough for your plant’s delicate roots.
Avoid using mineralized water or chloramine water, as they can be harmful to your Monstera.
When you’re ready to water, remember to add the water slowly and let each pour soak before moving on to the next.
Once the water begins to run out of the drainage holes, empty the drain tray to avoid over-saturation.
And finally, be mindful not to get the leaves wet. This can lead to damage and promote fungal growth. Remember, slightly under-watering is better than over-watering.
Signs of Underwatering
- Wilting or drooping leaves
- Leaves may have a papery texture and feel crunchy when touched
- Spots on the leaves that are yellow or brown in color
- Leaves may become thin or small in size compared to the other healthy leaves
- The growth of new leaves may be slower or stunted
- Discoloration on the stem, with a hint of brown or yellow
- Roots will appear smaller and less healthy than usual, with less white coloration
- The soil will feel dry to the touch even after watering
Signs of Overwatering
Overwatered Monstera Acuminata has:
- Yellow leaves and stems
- Wilted or drooped leaves due to lack of oxygen
- Mushy roots that appear brown and slimy when touched
- Soggy soil that feels wet even after a few days without watering
- A sour smell coming from the plant or soil
- Root rot
As native inhabitants of tropical climates, these plants thrive in temperatures ranging from 65-85℉. Keep their temperature needs in mind so that the plant grows really well.
If temperatures drop below 55°F, the Monstera Acuminata’s growth can slow, and anything below 50°F can even lead to shock and eventual death.
Hot temperatures above 90°F can dry out the plant’s stem and leaves due to transpiration.
For healthy Monstera Acuminata, you must understand the factors that affect temperature, such as the changing seasons. During winter, use LED grow lights to provide the right amount of light and warmth.
During spring and summer, you can take advantage of warm days and move your plant outside to soak in natural sunlight.
While temperature maintenance may seem daunting, it’s quite simple with the right tips. Ensure that the plant stays close to an east-facing window for plenty of indirect light.
Keep plants away from air conditioners and heaters and cover them with a frost blanket/plastic bag if temperatures drop below 50°F.
Signs Your Monstera Acuminata may be too old
- Leaves that are yellowing or turning brown
- Branches that are dropping off the plant
- Roots showing above the soil line
- Stems have become weak or overgrown, leading to drooping or sagging leaves
- Spots on the leaves, which can be caused by too much sun and not enough water
- The stems become brittle or broken
- Slow, stunted growth in comparison to other plants in the same environment
- Brown spots on leaves or other discoloration from too much water, light, or fertilizer
Signs Your Monstera Acuminata temperature is too high
- Leaves of the plant become droopy or wilted
- The leaves may appear dried out or crispy
- The stems might start to yellow and look weak
- Brown spots may begin to form on the leaves due to too much heat
- Growth appears stunted and slow compared to other plants in the same environment
Ensuring the proper humidity levels is critical to the growth of your Monstera Acuminata. While most household air should suffice, keep a close eye on the levels to keep your plant healthy.
Keeping the humidity between 60% to 80% is ideal for these tropical plants. Too much or too little humidity can cause severe damage to your plant.
In dry areas, winter can be challenging since heaters tend to dry out the air even more.
To maintain the correct levels, group your plants together, use a hygrometer, or a humidifier, or even mist the plant regularly with a fine-mist mister if needed.
Additionally, placing your plant over a pebble tray filled with water can help maintain proper humidity levels.
If you notice crispy brown tips, curling leaves, or fallen leaves, it may be a sign that the humidity level is too low.
If your plant appears to be getting too large and heavy for its pot, with yellowing leaves and a soft, mushy texture, this could indicate that the humidity level is too high.
5. Position of Monstera Acuminta
If you’re wondering about optimal positioning for your Monstera Acuminata, there are a few key factors to consider.
First, the size of your plant is important when determining the amount of space it needs. If you have a mature plant, it could reach the ceiling height or taller, with leaves measuring up to 3 feet.
East-facing windows are best for indirect light. But you can also have south, west, and north-facing windows too.
To maximize energy flow, apply Feng Shui principles. Use sheer curtains or fabric to filter light for south or west-facing windows.
Also, keep your Monstera Acuminata at least 2-4 feet away from direct light sources for optimal growth.
While Monstera Acuminata can be a beautiful addition to any home, there are certain areas where it should not be placed. Bedrooms, for example, are not ideal due to Feng Shui principles discouraging plants in this space.
Additionally, direct sunlight after 9:00 AM, as well as areas with south- or west-facing windows, should also be avoided. Crowded rooms and areas near heaters or ACs are also not recommended.
If you live in a warm place, the plant can grow outside. But make sure the temperature does not drop below 50°F. That is for areas with USDA zones 10b and higher.
Keep these guidelines in mind and your Monstera Acuminata will surely flourish. As an expert in the field, I can attest to the importance of proper plant placement for optimal growth and beauty.
Pro tip: To achieve the desired fenestrations, add full-spectrum grow light to supplement natural lighting.
If you want to keep your Monstera Acuminata plant thriving, fertilizer is your solution. Potting soil is usually enriched with nutrients that aid in plant growth, but those beneficial components can get depleted over time.
Like caring for monstera siltepecana, your plant needs vitamins to stay healthy. These vitamins are macro-nutrients, secondary nutrients, and micro-nutrients.
Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and calcium, magnesium, and sulfur are important for plants to grow. Iron, copper-boron, zinc, chlorine, and nickel are also needed but in much smaller amounts.
Fertilizing your Monstera plants is essential for their growth and overall health. During the active growth stage in spring and summer, it’s best to fertilize 1-2 times per month.
However, do not apply fertilizer during the dormant stages of winter and late fall. Avoid fertilizing after transplanting or repotting since the potting soil has fertilizer.
The reason for this is that most potting soils already contain fertilizers. When it comes to applying fertilizer, indoor plants require a weaker solution than their outdoor counterparts.
As an expert, I recommend using half the amount of liquid fertilizer when watering down the solution. For instance, if the manufacturer stipulates a teaspoon per gallon, only use half that amount.
Regardless of where your Monstera plants are growing, the benefits of fertilizing them are substantial.
As an expert in gardening, I highly recommend using all-natural compost to fertilize your Monstera Acuminata plants.
This method is effective in mimicking the plant’s natural environment, giving it the nutrients it needs to thrive.
One great type of compost to use is worm castings, which are rich in minerals and organic matter. To use worm castings, simply layer ¼ to ½ inch of compost onto the soil once or twice a year.
However, be mindful of the signs of over-fertilization, such as burnt or yellowing leaves, as well as under-fertilization, which can lead to stunted growth and weak plants.
By following these tips, you can ensure your Monstera Acuminata plants are healthy and vibrant.
I highly recommend a slow-release fertilizer as the best option. While it may come with a bit of a higher price point than other alternatives, the benefits far outweigh the cost.
Slow-release fertilizers provide a constant source of nutrients to your plant, allowing it to grow and flourish consistently over time.
Avoid granular fertilizers as they often cause nutrient imbalances and can be harmful to your plant’s overall health.
If you own a Monstera Acuminata plant, it is a good idea to use slow-release fertilizer on it. This will help keep your plant healthy.
7. Pruning and Grooming
Pruning M.Acuminata helps to maintain its overall health and prevent potential infections, such as stem rot. Pruning also allows you to manage the plant’s size and promote healthy growth.
The best time to prune plants is in early spring. This way, the plant will be ready for its period of fast growth and it will stay healthy and look nice.
During the dormancy period, it is best not to prune the plant. This is because there is not enough sunlight for the plant to make energy for growth.
To safely and effectively prune your Monstera Acuminata, you will need protective gloves and pruning shears. Gloves are a must-have to protect your skin from the plant’s irritating sap.
Always sterilize your cutting tools to prevent the spread of bacteria.
When pruning your plants, focus on removing old or unhealthy leaves and any stems that are too long. This will help the plant stay small and look nice.
Trim any unsightly aerial roots. If your plant is outgrowing its pot, you can trim up to a third of the roots to encourage fresh growth.
8. Propagation of Monstera Plants
Propagation is a great way to get more plants and share them with friends. Monstera Acuminata is an easy houseplant to propagate.
When propagating this Monstera species, you will need a few items like a cutting tool, rooting hormone, propagation promoter, and soil mix.
The process is also pretty easy and can be done through division, stem cutting, or air layering.
The best way to propagate Monstera Acuminata is through division/separation of the rhizome.
When replanting, make sure to divide the roots into two sections and pot them in separate pots filled with well-draining soil and peat moss.
You can take cuttings from the stem of a Monstera Acuminata and replant in water or moist soil. Make sure to use a sharp cutting tool or scissors when taking your cuttings, as this will reduce any damage to the stems.
Afterward, dip the ends of the cuttings into a rooting hormone and place them in moist Monstera Acuminata soil.
This method involves wiring up a stem, making an incision in it, and then filling it with sphagnum moss that has been soaked in water.
The area should be wrapped with plastic wrap and secured tightly so that the moss stays moist.
After a few weeks, the roots should start to form and you can cut the stem off at that point and pot it up in the soil.
9. Potting & Repotting
If you’re a proud owner of a Monstera plant, you know that repotting your plant is an essential step in ensuring its growth and survival.
Young plants require annual repotting and mature plants every 2-3 years. If a plant stays in the same pot for too long, it will suffer from root binding and stunted growth.
By repotting your plant, you allow room for the roots to expand and take in more nutrients, revitalizing its growth.
Before starting the whole process, choose the best time to repot. Early spring is ideal.
Next, select a new pot that has drainage holes and is larger than the existing one. Terracotta pots are a popular choice, but there are other available types of pots to use for Monstera.
Once you have your container, fill it 1/4 – 1/3 with potting mix. Then, carefully pull the plant out of the old container and trim some roots.
Replant the Monstera with plant support such as a coco coir or a moss pole, and hydrate it thoroughly. While you should water your plant frequently, avoid fertilizing for the first month after repotting.
10. Soil Drainage and Aeration
Understanding soil drainage and aeration is essential when it comes to Monstera Acuminata. The ideal soil mixture should be well-draining, containing organic matter, light, and lightly packed.
The pH of the soil is another crucial factor to consider as it impacts nutrient uptake. It’s ideal to maintain a pH range of 5.5 to 7. To raise the pH, add lime, and to lower it, add sulfur.
Proper soil aeration is also crucial as it supplies the roots with much-needed oxygen, promoting healthy growth.
As an experienced gardener, I have found that creating your own soil mix can be both cost-effective and rewarding. If you’d like to give it a try, mix sphagnum moss, orchid bark, worm castings, coir, activated charcoal, and perlite.
Signs that Monstera is in the wrong soil include drooping leaves and yellow and brown leaf edges.
Toxicity of Monstera Acuminata
Is Monstera Acuminata pet friendly? If you are a pet owner and are considering bringing a Monstera plant into your home, you may want to think twice.
Monstera is indeed toxic to dogs, cats, and even rabbits.
The cause of this toxicity lies in the plant’s Calcium Oxalate crystals. These microscopic crystals can cause unpleasant symptoms, including excessive drooling in your pet
While it’s unlikely that your pet would die from ingesting this plant, be aware of the danger it poses.
If you suspect that your pet has consumed any part of the Monstera plant, contact the ASPCA Poison Center immediately.
Prevention is always the best course of action, so if you do choose to bring the Monstera Acuminata into your home, make sure to keep it out of your pet’s reach.
As an expert in the field, I can confirm that the Monstera plant is toxic to humans, especially children. The reason for its toxicity lies in calcium oxalate crystals found in the stem, leaves, roots, and unripe fruit of the plant.
These crystals are small and needle-like and can sting the inside of the mouth, causing discomfort after ingestion. However, it’s essential to note that the Monstera Acuminata cannot kill humans.
The plant’s unripe fruit is delicious when ripe, making it tempting for children, so ensure it’s kept out of reach.
If your child has ingested the plant, the best course of action would be to clean their mouth and face thoroughly.
Common Problems with Monstera Acuminata
Here is a list of common problems that M.Acuminata owners may encounter:
1. Pests Infestation
The Acuminata plant, a beloved houseplant among enthusiasts, is fortunately quite resistant to indoor bugs. However, that doesn’t mean it’s immune to pests.
Common pests that are likely to attack it include spider mites, scale insects, thrips, and fungus gnats. These phytophagous insects are attracted to the plant’s sap and tissue.
Scale insects can be particularly damaging as it often settles in the leaf joints and stems. The adult fungus gnat is usually harmless, but its larvae can feed on the plant’s roots.
Female thrips pierce the tissues of the plants and lay eggs on them.
Because prevention is key, make sure you purchase plants from reputable nurseries and keep new plants isolated. Providing your plant with optimal growing conditions is also important in warding off potential pests.
However, if you do encounter unwelcome guests, there are several ways to combat them. Use a 70% rubbing alcohol solution to wipe down the leaves, or try using horticultural soap or pure neem oil.
Controlling the spread of pests is also important. Isolate the plant and buy predatory mites or ladybugs to help with biological control.
Mosquito bits can also destroy pesky fungus gnats. Yellow sticky gnat traps are a cheap, nontoxic, and effective solution.
All houseplants are usually susceptible to various diseases, which can cause distress to plant owners. The causes of these diseases vary and can include environmental stress, pests, or other factors.
Diagnosing the symptoms may be a challenge, but it is crucial to identify the disease to take appropriate action. Each disease affects the plant differently.
This plant is likely to get affected by root rot. This is brought about by overwatering and poor drainage.
The symptoms include yellow leaves, wilting and limp stems, foul odor from the soil, and black roots. To treat root rot, reduce watering, and improve the drainage of the soil to help with the circulation of air in the root zone.
Fungal leaf spot is another common disease that affects Monstera Acuminata. This disease is caused by fungi and appears as small yellow spots or streaks on the leaves of the plant.
To treat this disease, remove infected leaves and increase air circulation around the plant. Applying fungicides may also help with treating the infection.
Finally, powdery mildew is a fungal disease that is also seen on Monstera Acuminata. This disease appears as white powdery spots on the leaves of the plant and can cause leaf discoloration and wilting if left untreated.
To treat this problem, improve air circulation around the plant and apply sulfur-based fungicides to get rid of the infection.
3. Yellowing Leaves
One of the biggest concerns for Monstera Acuminata owners is the yellowing of its leaves. Yellow leaves are never a good sign in any plant, and it can be a real bummer for plant lovers.
Yellow leaves can be caused by too much or too little water, not enough humidity, and bug problems.
It is vital to know how to diagnose the underlying cause to effectively treat yellowing leaves.
If you take good care of it, you can make the yellow leaves on your Monstera plant go away. It will keep growing and looking beautiful in your home.
4. Slow Growth
Despite Monstera Acuminata’s reputation as an easy houseplant, some gardeners may notice that their plant isn’t growing as quickly as they’d like.
There are a few factors to consider when it comes to the growth speed of this plant. These are environmental factors like light and humidity soil composition and nutrient deficiencies.
Additionally, there are some signs that your Monstera plant may be struggling to grow. Such signs include stunted foliage, yellow or browning leaves, and a general lack of new growth.
To prevent yellowing of leaves, make sure that your plant is getting enough light and humidity.
5. Root rot
Root rot is a devastating problem that can affect any plant. This fungal disease is caused by overwatering and poor drainage that leads to rotting roots.
When the roots are infected, they cannot absorb nutrients and water, which results in yellowing leaves, limp stems, and leaf drops. If the infection progresses, the roots turn brown, and slimy and emit a foul odor.
Treating root rot in Monstera Acuminata can be challenging, but it is possible. The key is to catch it early and take corrective action.
This may include pruning affected roots, improving drainage, and reducing watering frequency.
Preventing root rot in Monstera involves maintaining healthy soil and watering practices.
6. Leaves Dropping
Leaf drop can be caused by various factors such as environmental changes, pests, disease, or simply a lack of care.
To prevent this from happening, look for signs and symptoms such as yellowing leaves, wilted leaves, or discoloration.
Prevention measures include ensuring proper watering, lighting, and humidity levels according to your plant’s needs. However, if your plant has already begun to experience leaf dropping, don’t worry.
You can help your plant to get better by pruning it, giving it fertilizer, and getting rid of bugs. This will give the plant the nutrients it needs to grow healthy leaves again.
7. Leaves Turning Brown
I have seen numerous cases of leaves turning brown, and it can be stressful for any plant parent. Brown leaves are usually a sign of trouble and can indicate a number of underlying issues.
Leaves can turn brown for several reasons. These include giving the plant too much or too little water, pests, diseases, and not getting enough nutrients.
It is essential to understand these symptoms, as knowing the root cause can help prevent and treat the issue.
With the right approach, you can revive your plant and bring it back to its former glory.
As they say, prevention is better than cure, and with a bit of care and attention, your plants will thrive and stay healthy.
