Monstera Adansonii 'Monkey Mask' (double planted) - Auckland pick-up only
This plant is one of one. The exact plant shown in all photos is the one you'll receive. Pick up only. Please read the Plant Pick Up FAQ's at the end before you add to cart.
Monstera 'Monkey Mask'
One of the easiest care Monstera in the Aroid family, this is Monstera 'Monkey Mask' or Monstera adansonii Round Form. This fast grower looks just as stunning vining or climbing. These are often labelled wrong as Obliqua, which is much rarer and vastly more expensive if you ever manage to find a real one!
This plant is double planted with both growth tips actively putting out new leaves right now and growing beautifully. Well rooted and about to unfurl a brand new leaf. All photos show you the exact plant you'll receive.
Currently in an 11.5cm Teku clear pot that allows you to easily monitor moisture level and root health at a glance. Planted and well rooted in Premium Bioleaf Aroid Custom Blend potting mix for the best start in life. Fed half-strength GT Foliage Focus with every water to avoid deficiencies.
Monstera 'Monkey Mask' Quick Care Guide
These guys like things warm (18 to 27 degrees), bright, humid and moist however I've raised this plant in normal indoor conditions with no added grow lights or humidity so it will adjust easily to your place.
They prefer a nice chunky, free-draining potting mix. Pick one (or make your own) based on what's suitable for aroids and epiphytes (I used this custom aroid blend). Mine do much better with frequent, light fertilising when growing (if kept somewhere warm and bright, they grow all year round).
Water more often in brighter, warmer conditions, less often in lower light or cooler temperatures. Direct sun is a no-no. Bright indirect light is the way to go. They like to be kept moist, not dry, not wet. I find mine do better when top watered. I wouldn't let this guy fully dry out or you'll quickly get dry crispy edges. They love humidity, but you may not need one at your place. You can check the humidity using a cheap hygrometer. This plant has been raised without a humidifier over summer, although I normally use the cordless H2O humidifiers in winter.
*Plant pick up FAQ's*
Please read before you buy
I want it! How do I get this plant?
Add to cart then check out like normal. It doesn't matter what address you enter when you checkout, so enter your address like usual. Choose the free shipping option called PLANT PICK-UP (you can only select this option if you have a plant included with your order). This plant cannot be shipped to you because covid combined with recent long weekends is causing unpredictable shipping times, so I don't want to risk shipping plants at the moment. Once paid for, it's all yours! I'll email you the pick-up details.
Where is pick-up from?
One Tree Hill in Auckland. Once your order's completed, I'll email you to arrange a pick-up day and time that suits you. Pick-up is required within 7 days of ordering. Pick-up can be between 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday, or 9am to midday Saturday. I'll email you the address and my mobile number after you order.
Please note it will be contactless pick-up, so your plant will be placed safely under shelter for you to collect, on the day and time you choose. Only your plant will be waiting for you, with your name on the box :)
Can I order other products for pick-up also?
Yes, you can. Provided you have a pick-up plant in your order, you can add other products to the same order, and collect everything at the same time (however without a plant in your order, you cannot do 'click and collect' or pick-up).
Can you put a plant 'on hold' for me?
No holds or rain-checks sorry. Only once your order is paid for is your plant is all yours. Adding to cart does not 'save' a plant for you, or block others from buying it. It really is 'first in, first served' and orders do need to be completed and paid for on the website.
Can someone else pick my order up for me?
Yes, they can. The only two people who know what day and time your plant will be ready for collection is you and me, so if you want to share those details with someone else so they can collect for you.
Can I change which plant I get?
The plant you will receive is the exact plant in the photos only. Every plant I list is one of one, with each plant photographed separately, so cannot be changed for a different plant.
Shipping and Delivery FAQ's
FLAT RATE SHIPPING
Flat rate shipping is $5.90 nationwide (or $9.50 for rural). Order as many products as you like without paying anything extra for shipping. The only exceptions are plants and fragile or oversize products (like handmade pottery and coffee table books), which have their own rates.
For $2 you can upgrade to signature required. Well worth it for anything valuable or limited edition that can't be replaced. Choosing signature required gives both of us the ability to claim if anything goes wrong with the courier. Signature required is flat rate $7.90 nationwide (or $12.50 for rural).

"Super impressed with this business. Something that is lost nowadays, is customer service. This however is not the case with Anna from “Love that Leaf”. Very happy with my purchase, very happy with the product information provided and very happy with the quick shipping and great packaging. Thanks!" Melayna Anderson
"By far the best customer care I've had in a long time. Website is such a wealth of information and the email with instructions for use after my purchase was fantastic. The pipette for measuring the correct amount was such a great inclusion, and the personalised message on the package was very cool. Definitely my go to shop for plant supplies now. Thanks Love That Leaf! A+++" Karyn Wilson
