Hi all — I have two Monsteras I'd love to grow in my bedroom. There's bright indirect light in there (maybe two hours of direct light in the late afternoon), but I'm worried about the temperature. The day/night temperature ranges in my bedroom are between 62-75 degrees. Would low 60s each night cause shock to my Monstera?

Not a problem. Your Monstera can handle cool temps probably better than you!

Haha thanks, Will! Good to know — I figured since it was tropical, it'd be less tolerant. Glad I asked!

We have them here growing outdoors in temps of 28-32F in winter. 60'S is great for tropicals. 70's are better but many tropical plants can survive to the LOW 20's with a good mulch.
