HELP.. I've upset my Monstera


im completely new to the world of plant care but have had a beautiful monstera plant for about 6 years. I repotted it a few days ago and gave it a good water and now it's really dropping and looking very sad. I'm actually feeling really upset and worries I may have made a big mistake in repotting, any advice would be greatly appreciated as I really don't want it to die! image

    Looks OK to me, perhaps its just having a little sulk!

  • I really hope so! I was just worried as it was so perky and always reaching for the stars before? Is it possible it just needs time to adjust? Are there things I should keep an eye on? 

    Many thanks for your response ?

    They are pretty tough, maybe make sure its in the same spot as it was before, these plants are tochy about being moved, what made you re-pot it?

    It has moved house.  That does take a bit of adjusting, even if you have warning.

    Keep an eye on it.  Make sure it isn't drowning or too dry either and give it an encouraging pep talk.   Plants do want to live and it should pick up.

    Monstera deliciosa are vigorous climbing plants in their natural habitat ; yours has nowhere else to go !

    It certainly looks healthy enough though .

  • I repotted because it was in a really small pot (about half the size of the one its in now) and the roots were coming through the bottom and it looked really crammed in?

    Should i put something in for it to climb up then? 

    Thanks for responses!

    The usual thing is to give them a mossy pole and peg the plant to it for support. You can usually get what you need from a florist or online florists' suppliers.
