What to do if Monstera leaf breaks off?
- Around 4 inches (10 centimeters) of tape length should suffice, but you may need more for larger stems.
- Gently apply the tape around the break and also cover the entire stem wrapping right down to the base of the plant.
- The plant will need at least 2-4 weeks for recovery.
Should I cut damaged leaves from Monstera?
Whenever you see leaves that aren’t healthy, use your sanitized shears or scissors to cut off the damaged leaves. Cut close to the base of the stem so you don’t leave long, scraggly stems on the plant. Keep in mind that yellow leaves might mean that the plant is getting too much water.
Can I cut a Monstera leaf in half?
Early spring is the best time to split or propagate your monstera because spring is when monsteras grow. They’ll be more likely to recover from root stress and start growing again. If you want to split, do it in late winter or early spring.
