Monstera Albo Borsigiana
The variegation pattern on Monstera Albo Borsigiana is stunning. Its leaves have green, marbling, and white patches. Each leaf will be distinct from the others.
This variegation pattern is unstable due to natural mutation. Albo Monsteras can grow fully green leaves again, or they can grow completely white leaves with no chlorophyll. These all-white leaves are lovely, but they put a huge strain on the plant and are the first to die.
Monstera Albo Variegata For Sale
The variegation on an Albo’s leaves is caused by mutated cells in the stem and leaf node. Even within the same plant, this can vary dramatically. The color of each leaf will be determined by the color of the previous leaf. You’ll be able to predict how much white and green will be on the next leaf if you pay attention to your Albo’s growth and variegation.
To maintain a sustainable balance between beauty and photosynthesis, prune back any new growth that is too white or too green on your Monstera Albo.
Monstera Albo Treatment
These popular, showy houseplants grow well in most indoor conditions and are native to the tropical rainforests of Central America. If you’ve previously cared for a Monstera deliciosa, you’ll have an advantage because caring for the albo is very similar. Monstera albo are known for being somewhat high-maintenance, so there are a few distinctions to be made.
A moss pole will encourage your Monstera albo to grow large, healthy leaves. In their natural habitat, these vining plants climb trees and thrive when given a moss pole to climb indoors.
Provide plenty of bright, indirect light to your Monstera albo to keep its variegation bright and plentiful. It is recommended that you get at least six to seven hours of filtered light per day. These plants must be kept out of direct sunlight because the variegated parts of their leaves are extremely sensitive to sunburn. Monstera albos will lose their variegation if not given enough light, so they are not good low-light plants.
A rich, well-draining soil mixture is essential. Monstera albos require drainage and nutrients, which can be provided by a mixture of equal parts perlite, orchid bark, coco peat, and coco coir. Mixing in some natural fertilizers, such as worm castings, is also a good idea for an extra boost.
Overwatering can cause root rot in these tropical plants, so allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Allow the top 1 to 2 inches of soil to dry before watering thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain through the drainage holes in the pot.
Humidity and temperature
The albo, like other plants in the Monstera genus, thrives in warm temperatures, ideally between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it ideal for indoor growing, though it can also be grown outdoors in USDA zones 9 to 11 during the summer or year-round.
They perform best with at least 60% humidity, which is higher than most household humidity levels. That means you’ll probably need to add humidity, which you can do by placing a humidifier nearby, grouping it with other plants, or moving it to a naturally humid room like the bathroom or kitchen.
Albos require more frequent feeding than regular Monstera deliciosas to produce their variegated foliage. However, these monsters are prone to over-fertilization, so getting it just right is critical. In addition to a potting mix enriched with natural fertilizers, feed your plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month. Feeding should be discontinued entirely during the fall and winter months when the plant is no longer actively growing.
Monstera Albo Potting and Repotting
These Monsteras grow slowly and should only need to be repotted every two to three years. Repotting Monstera albo is best done in the early to late spring or summer. Avoid repotting during the fall and winter months, when the plant goes dormant. Choose a pot that is one size larger, or 2 to 3 inches larger in diameter, than the previous pot.
The first step is to carefully remove the plant from its previous container and loosen the rootball as much as possible without breaking any roots. You want to get rid of as much old soil as possible. Place the plant’s root ball in the new pot, cover it with fresh potting mix, and water thoroughly. Return it to its original location and resume watering as usual.
Common Pests & Plant Diseases
Common houseplant pests include spider mites, scale, mealybugs, fungus gnats, and thrips. Inspecting your plant on a regular basis is the best way to catch any potential infestations early. As a preventative measure, apply insecticide to the plant on a regular basis.
