Should I cut black leaves off Monstera?
So make sure to prune your monstera! Pruning can also encourage your plant to grow and help you control where it puts out new leaves (and in the case of some plants, branches). Pruning is extra important for your monstera because sometimes it needs a little extra help getting rid of dead or dying leaves.
How do you save Monstera with black spots?
Black spots on Monstera can be caused by dehydration
If you’re unsure, pick up a moisture metre (they’re pretty cheap) and only water when the needle points to 2. If you keep watering your plant and the soil is drying out really quickly then try bottom watering your plant.
What does an overwatered Monstera look like?
Overwatered: If your monstera is getting too much water, you’ll notice the older leaves, or the leaves toward the bottom of the plant, yellowing first. Underwatered: If your monstera is too dry, leaves all over the plant will start to turn yellow, possibly starting with the newer, more vulnerable leaves.
