The Hydroponic Monkey Mask Monstera is a very close relative of the Swiss Cheese plant, but this time with an added benefit: No soil needed!
*Please note the plant is usually sent in an open vase, but depending on availability may come with a cork.
Key Benefits — Dust trapping and flexibility.
Because of its large leaves, the Monstera adansonii is excellent at attracting dust and keeping them away from the air you breathe. Great if you suffer from allergies!
In addition to that, growing plants in water give you more flexibility in arrangement. They will not grow as fast as soil-planted plants but they remain luscious for longer!
How do Hydroponic plants work
Hydroponics is the process of growing plants without soil. The nutrients needed are collected from water instead.
Growing plants in water have become more popular over the past few years, especially with plant parents that don’t have much space and renters. Hydroponic plants do not need heavy, bully media and are much easier to relocate.
How to set it up
You will receive your Hydroponic Monkey Mask Monstera and a glass container.
Pop the plant in the glass. Add enough water to cover its roots only
The top part of the roots should be free of water so they can breathe.
How to care for the Hydroponic Monkey Mask Monstera
Keep an eye on the water level, as it evaporates, it will need to be topped up, covering the roots only.
If you notice the water becoming a little dense, remove the plant, rinse the roots and replace the water with a fresher solution.
Because of filtration and chlorination, tap water will not have the nutrients your plant needs, so, use spring or rainwater.
From time to time, add a few drops of liquid organic fertiliser to the water. Change the water the next day. The plant will have absorbed all the necessary nutrients and will not sit in too much nourishment for too long (this could damage the roots).
Keep the glass always clean, this will ensure the plant lives longer!
Place the plant in a bright room avoiding direct sunlight.
Wipe the leaves with a clean cloth to remove accumulated dust.
