The monkey mask plant (Monstera adansonii) is a smaller, slower-growing version of the delicious monster (Monstera deliciosa). The unusually lobed leaves gave rise to its common name, and although smaller in size, it certainly packs a big punch. Use it in a hanging basket, to trail up a staircase or as a feature in a pot.
Being a tropical plant, it needs a warm, humid room and bright indirect light, but not sun, on its leaves. Place it a metre or so from a north- or east-facing window. Water once a week. Don’t let the soil dry out – keep it slightly moist. Feed with a liquid fertiliser at half strength once a month in spring and summer to maintain bright green, healthy leaves (yellowing foliage is a sign that the plant lacks nutrients).
