Being a plant lover means you’re already familiar with all the exotic plants. If you have a thing for keeping exotic plants at home, you’d love to have the Monstera Deliciosa Thai Constellation Monstera. Many plant lovers obsess over having this plant in their houses, and for good reasons.

What Makes Monstera Deliciosa Thai Constellation Different?

The Thai Constellation Monstera is similar to its parent plant, Monstera Deliciosa, but some differences set that apart. Constellation Monstera has plenty of heavenly splatters and splotches of creamy or off-white against their green leaves. It almost looks like the night sky with stars. Hence, it’s named Thai Constellation Monstera.

Is Thai Constellation Monstera Expensive?

The truth is that this gorgeous green, yet uniquely different plant offers a never before seen color pattern, which as a result makes this plant very rare and difficult to reproduce. Always remember: the more unique a plant is, the higher its price will go! 


How Should you Take Care of Thai Constellation Monstera?

You won’t be surprised to know that it isn’t easy to look after this exotic plant. It comes super expensive, so you should be prepared to ensure this plant gets everything it needs to thrive. Caring for every plant is a little tricky due to its sensitive nature. However, the Thai Constellation Monstera is extra high-maintenance.

When you’ve brought home this exotic plant, please ensure you give it all it needs to grow stronger, or else it’ll just wither away, and your money will go down the drain. If you’re a genuine plant lover, you would genuinely care about the plant’s well-being. So, if you’ve graced your house with the Thai Constellation Monstera, you’re about to be on your toes, ensuring this plant thrives. 


Light Exposure

The Thai Constellation Monstera has a different anatomy than other plants. The thing with Monstera plants is that the variegated areas do not contain any chlorophyll, making it difficult for them to harvest energy from the sun’s bright rays.

When that happens, the variegated areas have to depend on the green places (containing chlorophyll) to get the required energy from the sun. So, when you’ve got a Thai Constellation Monstera in your house, please ensure to place it in a way that it gets indirect sunlight.

The ideal situation will be to put this plant near a huge sunny window with blinds or curtains to shade the plant from direct sunlight. If this plant receives too much sunlight, its leaves will start withering and eventually burn and fall off. 

Watering Thai Constellation Monstera

Even though the Thai Constellation Monstera is a tropical plant, it doesn’t mean you should leave its leaves to sit in warm soggy oil the whole day. It would help to watch out for how dry the soil has become before watering it.

Ideally, you’ll have to water your Thai Constellation Monstera once (maybe twice) a week, depending on its size and how warm your home is. Many people mistake overwatering this plant as they believe all plants need to be constantly watered.

However, please do not make the same mistake with the Thai Constellation Monstera, as it’s different. The problem with soggy oil is that it prevents the leaves from getting oxygen, eventually causing the plant to rot. So, please water it only when required (when the soil is dry). 


Humidity Importance for Thai Constellation Monstera

Humidity levels for your new Constellation Monstera plant are equally important as watering and lighting. For your plant to thrive and be in constant bloom, humidity is key for optimal health. Make sure to keep humidity levels higher than 80 percent for best results.
