Monstera Looks unhealthy
Plant: Monstera deliciosa
How long have you had the plant? 6 months to 1 year
What can I do to help this plant? It was looking unhealthy over the winter but is producing a new leaf
Could you please show me a closer photo of one of the leaves with the brown patches?
You have a pretty severe thrips infestation. More info on treating thrips HERE.
Pay close attention to the photos so you can become familiar with what thrips look like – this will help you detect an infestation before it becomes a major pain to control.
At this degree of infestation, you may even want to just chop off the newest growth along with its node and try to re-start the plant from there.
