How to Care for Green Galaxy Plant

Caring for a thriving Green Galaxy isn’t anything out of this world. However, you must pay attention to the plant’s needs and desires.



To grow a gorgeous Green Galaxy and enjoy the delicate foliage, you must place your plant in a location with plenty of indirect light. These plants are native to South American tropical forests and thrive at the bases of trees. To recreate similar conditions for them to grow at home, avoid exposing them to direct sunlight. 

Also, rotate your plant regularly to ensure an even growth pattern. 

Water and Soil Needs

Green galaxy plants love humidity. However, they won’t perform well in soggy soil so take measures to avoid overwatering. To begin with, pick a suitable potting mix: it must be well-draining and airy to prevent moisture accumulation, which may cause plenty of issues to your plant. Then, wait until the soil feels dry before watering your plant. Use your fingers to detect whether your plant is thirsty or not. 

Don’t worry too much about the soil pH: this Monstera variety isn’t too fussy. 

Temperature Requirements

You may grow your Green Galaxy plant outdoors if you live in USDA hardiness zones between 10 and 12. But if you live in slightly less warm regions, it will perform much better as a houseplant. 

Avoid exposing it to temperatures below 55°F and keep your plants in a room where the temperatures stay between 65 and 75°F. 


While adding fertilizer isn’t a requirement, your plant will benefit from some extra nutrients during the growing season. Avoid overdoing it and remember that too much of a good thing can be detrimental. Instead, ensure you follow the instructions you find on the product label. Also, remember to suspend the application over the winter. Indeed as the temperatures drop, your plant goes dormant (and doesn’t need as much nutrition). 

Common Diseases 

Green Galaxy plants rarely suffer from diseases or attacks from pests. However, you must pay attention to how you take care of them. For instance, overwatering is one of the most common issues with this plant. If your plant’s leaves become yellow or the soil feels moist for too long, let the plant dry before adding more moisture. Also, remove any mushy roots to allow your plant to recover faster. 

Don’t forget to check for pests and remove them as soon as you notice them.
