  • Split Leaf Philodendron vs. Monstera?
    I've heard split leaf philo used to to call what I was sure is a Monstera. Are these the same, and if not, what's the difference? <br><br>Photo attached because we can never have too many monstera images :)

      PlntNrd Lizzie is correct. Split leaf Philo is, in fact, the same as a Monstera deliciosa. These plants were once considered part of the philodendron genus, but their classification changed at some point and now they are in the Monstera genus. They are related, as both are part of the Araceae family. And, I believe the plant that Lizzie is talking about is the Monstera Adansonii.

      Lizzie My understanding is that they are all names for the same plant. People also call them Swiss Cheese Plant, but there's a different type of monstera that is more holey than splitty and I feel like that's more of a swiss cheese situation!
  • Plant Apps
    Do you guys ever use apps to help oversee your plant maintenance? Like for identifying plants, watering reminders, etc? I tried one before it was a faulty, poorly designed app but I'm curious if any of you have recommendations. <br><br>This article was an interesting read. Have you used any of these? <br><br><a href="https://www.opusgrows.com/blogs/journal/108690758-5-apps-that-will-kinda-guarantee-you-won-t-kill-your-houseplants" title="Link: https://www.opusgrows.com/blogs/journal/108690758-5-apps-that-will-kinda-guarantee-you-won-t-kill-your-houseplants">https://www.opusgrows.com/blogs/journal/108690758-5-apps-that-will-kinda-guarantee-you-won-t-kill-yo...</a><span id="_wysihtml5-undo" class="_wysihtml5-temp"></span><br>
  • Christmas Trees?
    Any tips on how to keep them fresh? Of course, I water mine, but it still dries out pretty quickly. Do you have this experience too? Is it something to do with heat/humidity of the space? <br><br><br>

      Christina Sotto OMG! I got my tree the first week of December and it's already dry too! I hear you have to cut the bottom off because the tree forms a sap around the base when it's initially cut that prevents it from absorbing water. I'd love to know if anyone has any tips as well!
