In this concise guide we run down the reasons for monstera leaves curling and what to do about it to get your plant healthy again…
Why Are My Monstera Leaves Curling?
Monstera leaves curl up when they lack moisture. Most commonly this is from underwatering, and sometimes from a lack of humidity. If the soil is dry, give it a good soaking and then maintain a regular watering schedule.
Also you need to check humidity – as the curling from lack of moisture in the leaf could be due to a lack of humidity in the air. The best way to do this is to get a humidity meter. They are really cheap. You can then monitor the humidity levels and you’ll be surprised how much they can drop at drier times of the year. When the level drops you can mist the plants or get a humidifier to up the ambient levels around the plant. They should be above 50% at least to get the best out of the plant.
