Originating from the tropical rainforests of Central America, this particular variety stands out with its creamy white and green marbled leaves, resembling a constellation of stars against a night sky, hence its name. Each leaf is unique, with its own distinct pattern of variegation, making every plant a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

The Thai Constellation prefers its soil to be kept evenly moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch, ensuring that the pot has adequate drainage to prevent root rot.
Bright, indirect light is ideal for this Monstera. While it can tolerate some shade, too much direct sunlight can scorch its variegated leaves, causing them to lose their distinctive patterns.
Aim for a temperature range of 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). Being a tropical plant, it's sensitive to cold, so keep it away from drafts and sudden temperature drops.
A well-draining potting mix is essential. Consider a blend of regular potting soil with some perlite or orchid bark to ensure good aeration and drainage.
The Thai Constellation thrives in higher humidity levels, ideally around 60% or more. If your home is dry, consider placing a humidifier nearby or occasionally misting the plant.
Feed your Monstera with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season. Reduce feeding during the dormant winter months.
While the Monstera Thai Constellation is a visual delight, it's best to admire it from a distance. The plant is toxic when ingested and can cause irritation if its sap comes into contact with the skin. It's advisable to keep it out of reach from pets and children.
