    I want to move my monstera deliciosa because it looks better in a certain place but I don’t want to stress it! The first image (next to the windowsill) is its current position, the second image (the bay window) is where I want it to be placed. However I still want it to grow relatively fast. The bay window gets light from the North east and west but the east facing window only gets filtered sun as there are trees in the way. In its current position it gets east facing sun and it is strong in the morning and it seems to be thriving. I have too many plants in this window because it gets the most sun and I want them all to be happy! Help

    Monstera's in their natural habitat are jungle plants. They don't like being in bright sun, just a good amount of filtered daylight ( not sun ).

    I think you'll have to decide as I'm totally confused with all your directions etc.

    Hope I've helped ☺

      Um, it’s in a pot. Just move it and should it start to look stressed then move it back

        They are fairly accommodating regarding light levels. Mine gets some full sun and grows well but I have grown them in lower light and they do well also. They get pretty big if happy, mine is a small one.
