AKA 'Ant Plant', Monolena are a tropical plant with ornate leaves and a thick, bulging trunk. These are strictly for tropical plant lovers, since they do require strong humidity and a lot of water.
Place in pot with drainage hole. Keep soil evenly moist at all times. Provide added humidity.
Bright indirect light indoors, shade outdoors. Avoid direct sun.
Monolena are also known as ‘ant plants’ as the caudex the plant grows from provides a home to ants in the wild. These plants are epiphytes, but can be grown in soil as well. Will develop interesting blooms in good conditions. Keep in temperatures above 50º.
