Pruning Your Monstera

Pruning is an important part of plant care. It helps remove leaves that aren’t benefiting the plant anymore while using the plant’s resources. This helps the plant to use the available nutrients and water for new growth. It’s also a good way to ensure your plant retains an appropriate size and attractive shape.

It’s also a good way to get rid of dying or dead leaves. If you don’t prune your Monstera regularly, it can easily grow to unmanageable dimensions.

Wear gloves while pruning your Monstera plant, the sap of this plant is toxic and can irritate your skin.
