Why are Monstera leaves dripping water?
The water droplets you see forced out of your Monstera’s leaves are due to transpiration. Transpiration is the process of water vapor leaving the stomata, or pores, on the underside of the leaf. So really, it is a very natural process.
Should my Monstera be dripping?
Yes, it’s perfectly normal for Monstera to sweat. This process is also known as crying, leaking or, more formally, guttation. The plant gets rid of excess water through tiny holes called hydathodes which can be found at the tip of the leaf. This isn’t an indication that your plant is sick or needs more water.
Why is my plant sweating?
When trees and plants “sweat,” they cool themselves andcan cool the surrounding air. Through a process called transpiration,water and nutrients are taken up by plant roots from soil and delivered to the stem and leaves as part of photosynthesis.
