I live in Cincinnati so were practically neighbors lol!! I just wanted to say thank you for your tips & advice because I'm going crazy over my monstera & fearful of doing something wrong. I hv roughly 45 houseplants so I'm no stranger to plant care but for some reason I struggle with monstera plants & trusting youtube or pinterest for advice really scares me because theres no real consistency in advice or care tips. Anyway, I cant wait to order from your Amazon store, headed that way now! Thank you!! -Trish
