Re: advice on a monsterous houseplant


william,

since you asked an "amateurish" question, here goes an amateur's answer :-)

since monstera is an epiphyte, you can try to get it to climb up a pole of
osmunda fiber, sphagnum-covered branch etc.  once it establishes by growing
roots up this pole, you can sever the potted portion and voila, a rejuvenated
plant with new roots with a more "natural" habit.  btw, a kind soul (kevin
martyn) in this list sent me cuttings of the variegated monstera a few months
ago.  it's still growing very well in water.  another option, if there is
aereal growth with roots, is to cut it off and root it in moist sphagnum or
water.
