Monstera Deliciosa Brown Leaves

stephlmannstephlmann Posts: 2
We bought a Monstera deliciosa plant back in March. We've been trying to keep it watered but not too wet, but it's developing a lot of brown leaves. 

Can you please offer any advice on what we're doing wrong and how we save our Monstera plant?

    Is it in front of a radiator in a bathroom?  

    I know they’re supposed to need high humidity but yours is obviously not happy.

    I’d move it into another room and allow the compost to dry out a bit.

    It needs light but not direct sunlight. 

    Test the compost by sticking your finger in up to the first joint and only when that is dry do you need to water.

    After watering allow the pot to drain ... check that its not standing in water inside the white pot. 

    Mist it gently with a sprayer every day but don’t soak it. 

    I would remove those damaged leaves. 

    Hope that helps 🤞

    Hello,

    Thanks for your reply. No, it's not in the bathroom, that's where we moved it last night to empty the pot as a build-up of water had occurred! Could this be the issue for the brown leaves then?

    We've been misting it daily too, but perhaps that's contributed to the build-up of water as well?

    As far as my knowledge goes, it shouldn't be in direct sunlight should it?

    Thanks.
