When planting, it is essential that Monstera pinnatipartita is provided with the right conditions. A well-draining, humus-rich soil is ideal, and potting the plant in the correct size pot that is not too small is also essential. As with most plants, the Monstera pinnatipartita needs full sun or a bright, semi-shaded area.

Watering guidelines for this plant are straightforward, with the soil needing to be kept evenly moist but not waterlogged. During the growing season, regular watering is needed as the Monstera pinnatipartita is particularly thirsty, especially when it is young. Established Monstera pinnatipartita plants can be watered less in the winter when the plant is not actively growing.

For those living in colder regions, growing the plant in the pot is the best option. In this case, it is important to take extra care to make sure the plant's root system is insulated to protect it from cold weather.

Monstera pinnatipartita - Nido Nodo

Rare collectible species from Columbia. It starts out with somewhat light green undivided leaves, then begins to split as the plant matures growing small splits along the leaf. Eventually, the plant will set up in a nook or a joint in a tree and begin growing as if nesting. This is where the plant becomes most interesting. The leaves become completely divided or pinnate.
The Monstera pinnatipartita is one such out-of-the-ordinary example. This evergreen climbs with epiphytic aerial roots and can grow up to 2 feet a year if growing conditions are optimal. Despite their show-stopping appearance, these plants are surprisingly easy-to-care-for.
While mature plants certainly have the wow factor, the smaller foliage on juvenile plants is solid rather than fenestrated. You'll need patience for the payoff if you buy this baby.
