Monstera Thai Constellation
Monstera plants prefer bright, indirect light, but can tolerate low light conditions. In their natural habitat, they grow in the understory of the rainforest, where they receive dappled light filtered through the canopy of taller trees. When grown indoors, they should be placed in a location where they receive bright, indirect light, such as near an east- or west-facing window. Avoid placing your monstera plant in direct sunlight, as this can scorch its leaves. If your monstera is not getting enough light, it may become leggy and have smaller, fewer leaves. On the other hand, if it is getting too much light, its leaves may turn yellow. Adjusting the amount of light your monstera receives can help keep it healthy and encourage new growth.
We ship our plants in weekdays ie. monday to friday. We avoid weekends because we don't want our parcel to get stucked at the postal office. Processing depends on several factors like the type of plant, when you order it etc.
Standard shipping takes 4-6 days to reach, but it may vary during the holiday seasons and your location.
Where do you ship from?
Most of the plants get shipped from Pune, although we have a few different locations across India. And we ship all over India.
Orders are dispatched within 5 working days. Cancellations will be considered only if the cancellation request is made within 24 hours of placing an order.
Shipment took more than two weeks after placing the order.
The plant looked healthy when I received it. The soil was extremely wet, so I decided not to water it till the top started to dry. I left it in a location with a good amount of indirect light. After a week, the plant started to wilt. Seeing as the soil was still wet, I decided to repot and check the roots.
The plant had an extremely small root system, and most of it was rotting. The pot it came in was way too large for the amount of roots the plant has. Also, most of the roots were still contained in the coco pellet with the netting, preventing the roots from easily growing outward. This is a classic problem when buying plants from nurseries.
I usually don't repot my plants for at least a month after receiving them via courier to reduce shock the plant has to go through. But I regret not repotting this one sooner.
I have since cut away 90% of the roots and moved it to water. New healthy roots are now growing, but will still take a while for the plant to get established.
My recommendation to soiled: Ensure your plants are in a pot based on the root size of the plants and that the coco pellet netting is removed. It is very clear that this plant was first grown out on coco pellets, and maybe a week before shipment, was moved to a pot that was two sizes too big for it. This causes the bottom of the pot to remain extremely wet, while the top dries out, increasing the chances of overwatering.
I wouldn't take time out to write this review if it was for a normal plant, but this is a slightly expensive and rare plant, hence I do hope you take my recommendations into account.
