Obliqua Monstera | 6″ Pot
The one and only Mostera Obliqua is here. Monstera Adansoniis are constantly sold as Obliqua due to their many similarities. For the first several years of its life, these two plants look almost exactly alike! Only after several years will an Obliqua produce those characteristic, highly fenestrated, skeletal leaves. Until then, they’ll look much like an Adansonii. Obliqua leaves are extremely fenestrated to the point that there is more hole than leaf. In fact, up to 90% of a mature monstera Obliqua leaf is empty space! Obliqua leaves are also paper thin and delicate, whereas Adansonii leaves are slightly sturdier and have a bit of texture. The other major difference is that you won’t find a true Obliqua in garden centers or from your typical online plant shops, you’ll have to do some digging. The only way to get your hands on one of these is to buy it directly from a private grower (Plant Hawaii) or collector. Don’t miss out on this offer!

📝 Care Sheet Included
Monstera obliqua needs constant, substantial humidity. These leaves are super delicate and must be kept nice and supple, otherwise, they’ll dry right out and get crumbly.
If you live in a tropical area and have little to no climate control in your home, you may be okay. Maybe. But if you use AC, heat, or if you don’t live in the tropics, you’ll want to get your obliqua its own personal humidifier (preferably warm or room temperature vapor) and keep it on 24/7. Roomy terrariums can also work for containing high humidity.
Shoot for 85% humidity or more!
Obliqua also likes warmer temperatures, from 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit.
