Monstera Plants
Q.

A leaf on my Monstera deliciosa has disappeared? What could’ve eaten or caused this?

I put Delia in my shower room after showering last night as I believe it likes humidity. Woke up to put it back in its place to find half the leaf missing! Asking how to avoid this happening again

That's a big chunk missing, I think too much to suspect an insect pest like a caterpillar, and not characteristic of snail or slug. Do you you think that Delia could have had a hungry rodent visit her in the shower last night? Either that, or a torn leaf from a pet, or damage during the moving of the pot. Not sure.
