Dubia Monstera is more commonly known by the name Shingle plant. The oversized leaves of this Monstera grow flat on the vine and, when trained to grow upright, overlap like roof shingles. The striking, deep-green leaves remain a solid medium green and have interesting vein patterns of deep green. 

Best Locations For Growing Dubia Monstera

Monstera makes an impact in any room. The smaller size of the Shingle Monster makes it easy to fit into smaller spaces or offices. The vining habit of the shingle plant is best displayed along a vertical structure like a piece of wood or moss-covered pole. The epiphytic roots will need only a small amount of training to cling tightly to the base structure.

Dubia Monstera Sunlight Requirements

Indirect bright light from an east- or west-facing window will keep the vein markings dark. Lower light levels are acceptable to Shingle Plants, although eventually, the leaves may start to grow smaller when the light is too low. Artificial grow lights can be used for areas that do not have bright enough light. 

Dubia Monstera Care

Use a loose potting soil with lots of nutrition. Monstera plants are epiphytic and grow on the bark of other trees and plants. Mix 1 part indoor potting soil with 1 part fine orchid bark to promote air circulation around the roots. Indoor temperatures between 60-80 degrees F are recommended, and placement near drafts or heating vents should be avoided. Extra humidity needs to be provided with a cool mist humidifier or a nearby tray of pebbles filled with water. If you choose to mist the leaves, make sure to use distilled water. Hard or other treated water will leave white spots on the leaves. Regular dusting of the large leaves keeps dirt and dust out of the air pores of Dubia Monstera. 

Watering Dubia Monstera

Let the soil dry out in between waterings. The top 2-3 inches of soil should be dry. During rapid growth in the spring and summer, water approximately 1-2 times a week. When growth slows in the winter, watering can be cut back to once every two weeks as long as the humidity is high.

Feeding Dubia Monstera

Feeding can continue year-round for Dubia Monstera. A granular, slow-release fertilizer added to the soil's surface makes feeding easy. Choose a formula with a balanced ratio of NPK and apply once every four months. Liquid houseplant fertilizer can also be during watering once every month.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
