Monstera Deliciosa Crema Varigata “Thai Constellation” (Yellow Variegated Monstera Deliciosa)
Monstera Deliciosa “Thai Constellation” or yellow-variegated Monstera Deliciosa has been one of the highly sought-after plants ever. Its incredible form of leaves can grow up to 3’ wide with large holes. Each leaf is unique with exceptionally beautiful cream-and-green variegation.
Unlike the green Monstera Deliciosa, this variegated form has much slower growth and not a drought tolerance as the regular form can do. The yellow portion of the variegated Monstera leaves cannot absorb light, thus, low light conditions are not ideal. A fairly bright room with plenty of shade is best. Direct sunlight will damage the leaves and not enough light can slow down the growth.
Slow released fertilizer works best for Monstera “Thai Constellation”. Fertilize sparingly away from the base every 3-4 months.
Monstera “Thai Constellation” thrives best in moist soil with high organic matter. It can grows fairly tall when it matures. Being an upwards climbing shrub, a sturdy support, like a moss stick, is essential to support its aerial roots and also encourage growth. Be sure to move it inside during winter months to avoid frost and freezing temperature.
