Q.My monstera is looking a bit droopy and sad

Zone N1e7g2 | Anonymous added on August 23, 2020 | Answered

Hi! When I first got my monstera the lady I bought it off of had just replanted it from splitting up the larger plant. It was standing up right and looking happy! Now the 2 stems are separated and the leaves are looking droopy. I haven’t watered it too much because I’m scared of root rot. Should I be reporting it to a bigger pot? Or what should I do?! I live in a basement apartment so there is no direct sunlight, I’d say it’s mostly low light during the day. Help!
