When should I size up my Monstera pot?
One way to tell if it’s time to repot your Monstera is to check its drainage hole: if you see any roots poking out, your Monstera has outgrown its pot! If this is the case, plan to go up a size in pots before replanting. This will give the Monstera plenty of space to let its roots breathe.
How big should my Monstera pot be?
When it comes time to repot your Monstera, as a general rule of thumb, I always advise going up 1 pot size, and no bigger. For example, if your plant is in a 6 inch diameter pot and you need to repot, only go up to an 8 inch diameter pot.
Is my pot too small for my Monstera?
Roots coming out of the drainage holes
This is a surefire sign that your Monstera deliciosa most likely needs a new pot. If you see roots creeping out of the drainage holes, go ahead and find a pot that is one size bigger. For example, if your plant is in an 8 inch diameter pot, only go up to a 10 inch diameter pot.
