Q.Monstera Plant Leaves Not Glossy

Anonymous added on November 5, 2010 | Answered

I have a Monstera plant with two leaves that are not glossy and both are hanging very vertical. These are the two newest leaves and I wonder if I gave it too much fertilizer during the summer. Can I regain the gloss for these leaves?

Sometimes new leaves need a little time to develop a glossiness. I would give them a month or so to see if they start to shine. If they do not, check how much you are watering and the fertilizer. These plants do not need much fertilizer, so I would only fertilize it once a year or so.
