What is a Monstera stem?
What is a Monstera Node? The stem of any plant is made up of nodes and internodes. The nodes are the parts where new growth can emerge from the stem (including leaves, branches, and aerial roots). The internodes are simply the areas between the nodes.
Is it OK to cut stems of Monstera?
Remove dry or dead leaves all year round, but save any major pruning for the spring and summer months. When pruning your Monstera, use sharp, clean shears and cut any excessive growth at the base of the stem.
Will a Monstera stem grow back?
If you’re pruning to control your monstera’s size, you can safely cut the plant down to size. Just know it will grow back and you’ll need to do it again at some point!
