How do you prune a frost damaged Monstera?
The damaged plant is ready for pruning only after there’s no threat of additional frost. The goal when pruning is to remove all dead leaves and stems back to a point where healthy stems are growing. This can mean cutting off only a few leaves or cutting back the plant’s main stems, depending on the damage to the plant.
Will Monstera grow back after winter?
Give the plant a few weeks, and before long, it will be putting out new and healthy growth once more. But don’t be alarmed if it takes a little bit of time for your plant to return to normal.
How do you save a frost bitten plant?
Simply trim back the dead areas around the new growth. Excessive pruning or fertilizing could still cause the plant to use more energy than it has stored up. As spring turns to summer, you can trim away the rest of the dead foliage and let your plant flourish.
