I have to agree with @cyndi it can hang out there a mighty long time before it bothers it 💘😍

@cyndi @ShelleySnyder that’s what I’m going to do. I put it back in the greenhouse cause we’re waking up to mid 30’s and I put a lot of dirt over the roots and watered them and everything in there pretty good🤗😊💕

Does anyone know if this will pull through I think that light green and yellowish color is from getting way to cold. A couple other leaves look the same????😰

@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom. Well u were “spot on!!” It was frozen I’m so glad but it’s very rootbound and I guess I’ll wait until this cold weather weather goes by and repot it!!! Great statement!!👍🏻👍🏻😊💕

Do you call that a cheese plant like we do Terri..🧀

comment
terrimclaughlin

@wagamomthompsonbtinternetcom I’ve heard on YouTube and in magazines it’s called the “Swiss cheese plant”. That does really fit it more the Monstera.?? I’m guessing Monstera translates to split leaf???😮🤔🤭😂😊💕

I think monstera means monster, Terri! Lol actually, I looked it up, it from the Latin meaning 'abnormal',... due to the split leaves. I love Google 😁

My Monstera! The problem is I can’t seem to get a cutting to root but as u c I only have 1 main trunk?

comment
terrimclaughlin

You can c where I cut a couple branches trying to propagate @cpl721 but I believe I need some of the trunk not just the branch I was thinking off topping it off??😊💕. All advice welcome @cyndi @ShelleySnyder???😊💕

terrimclaughlin

This was from a cutting from @hannahchristine I’m not sure why I just have the one trunk (not sure if that’s what it’s called?)😊💕

ShelleySnyder

I think your best bet would be to take the top, if you want to take the chance, I've never done one of these.🤔 If you can get another cutting from Hannah then I would go for it!💘😍

Cut the top below 2 or 3 roots that are off the sides then put a little rooting harmone then pot it up water well. The rest of plant will keep growing so no worries.

@cyndi Thxs cyndi I think that’s what I’m going to do I wasn’t sure how far to go down I think I should just wait till about March but like you said it should keep growing maybe creating another branch. Thxs🤗🤗😊💕

terrimclaughlin

@ShelleySnyder yep it’s getting cut🤭😂🤗. They seem to propagate easy but I think topping this one is the only way. Usually I think they have a lot of trunks not sure why this ones growing like this?!?? So hopefully I’ll post it a few months after I top it off!!!!👍🏻🤗😊💕

@moore.794 First, I hope your holidays were wonderful and let’s hope this new year gives us peace, happiness, good health and wonderful days of gardening!! Thxs Terry I’ve just seen many of these with a few stems but I understand it’s best not to transplant too often I’d love to put some type of natural wood for it to climb I have a trellis but those runners don’t seem to be grabbing hold of it??Thxs for the information!!
