Hi everyone!

I've had this lovely monstera for a few months now and it seems as though it is looking sadder each day. The leaves are not as sturdy as they were and the younger leaves are yellow and one is half brown. I don't know what I'm doing wrong - overwatering or underwatering?

I water it with a water spray twice a week roughly and it sits in indirect sunlight. Can anyone help me make my monstera happy again?

It appears to me that your cache pot is small, it may be root bound and in need of a soil change with good draining soil, how often do you give it a good soaking? Other members will have more advice for you Welcome!

I'm right there with you Christine. It looks root bound.
