The easy and simple ways to care for the Monstera Siltepecana plant which I implemented can be as mentioned below-
- Adequate watering:
All the plants need an appropriate and adequate amount of water for their survival. This water can be gained by the plants in proper amounts if you know exactly what the water need of the plant is.
Watering should be done in a measured quantity so that it neither dries up the plant nor block the air holes of the plant. For measured watering, the surface soil of them in the pot in which the Monstera Siltepecana plant is placed should be of 2 – 3 cm in height. When this surface soil gets dried up, then watering should be done up to the brim, so that even if the water quantity exceeds above the expected, still the plant would be easily able to absorb that much water content in it.
This is what made it easy for me to perform the watering process so easily and conveniently. This gives better results and helped the plant to grow considerably large and thickness.
- Good temperature and light:
The plants of Monstera Siltepecana are light-loving species. They need a lot of light and a humid atmosphere to stay alive and grow longer. They are a fresh-light inheriting plant species. So, I made sure that I provide a proper amount of light, humidity, and adequate temperature. When bright light was provided to the Monstera Siltepecana, they grew very fast and also looked very alive and fresh.
The Monstera Siltepecana can also live for a longer time in cooler temperatures. They are a tolerant kind of plant species and can easily cope up with the variations in the temperatures.

The Monstera Siltepecana plant is somewhat a climber-type of the plant. It constantly needs the support of the other plant to grow wider and longer. But, when
provided long and stiff support, the plant grows to a very large length. So, I made sure that I provide good support to my Monstera Siltepecana and watch it growing huge and tall day-to-day.
Originally, when a plant is being bought by a person, it has a very short length. But, eventually, it grows to a Monstera Siltepecana plant would be around 25-30 cm but as it grows taller and stronger, it may grow much more than its original size. This is the strongest and best ability of a plant in itself.

It usually happens with us that we bring a plant at home very happy and with full enthusiasm, but forget to take proper care of it. This causes a huge loss to the plant as it gets neglected and loses its charm and freshness. I did it with a lot of my plants and regretted it a lot later. But while caring for my Monstera Siltepecana, I made sure that I do not do the same thing again.
Caring for Monstera Siltepecana through its whole life-span is very important as it needs continuous care and attention to grow more and more. Therefore, you need to make sure that you never neglect or leave your Monstera Siltepecana alone and that you always be cautious about its growing speed and style.

- Regular checking and shuffling the soil of the plant:
Usually, people care for their plants a lot, but in the wrong way. They usually think that watering their plants at regular intervals and providing them enough light, humidity, and moisture from time-to-time is more than enough for the plant to be happy and grow faster. But that’s not the whole truth. A plant needs one more very important thing to grow and propagate faster and that is shuffling off the soil from time-to-time.
Soil shuffling is the process of renewing the soil present in the pot that supports the growth of the plant. Old soil from the surface is regularly shuffled with the new soil properly and evenly throughout the pot and then watering is done, so that the air holes present in the soil helps the plant in breathing fresh air and absorbing more moisture in itself than the old soil, that would otherwise clot the plant due to clamping taking place inside it.
