Seeing the photo of the plant, I think you have some larger issues that need to be addressed, notably leaf spots on most of the remaining leaves.
I don't see a window anywhere it sight of your Monstera, so I suspect it is not getting enough light. It does not need direct sun falling on its leaves, but it does need to be within a couple of feet from a sunny window.
The pot is much larger than necessary. The excess soil in the large pot will tend to retain moisture for too long and suffocate the roots. You will have to be very careful to allow the soil to dry about 2 inches deep into the pot before watering lightly. I believe a weekly dosing in the shower is too much for it.
Thank you for your reply Will.
Oh no, are those leaf spots really bad?
The room it's in now has 2 large south facing windows that provide sun most of the day, but i try to keep it out of direct light. If i remember correctly the leaves became soft and droopy around late autumn and i was worried my rather cold flat might harm it, so i moved it in to the kitchen for a while, this is when the spots appeared. The kitchen has no direct light at all so i guess that's what caused the spots.
There's been no new spots since i moved it back, but should i be worried that the spots are still there?
I shall lay off watering it so often. It seems sturdier in the bigger pot, and it seems to stand up (if that makes sense) whereas in the smaller pot the leaves hung down past the bottom of the pot, but i don't want the bigger pot to cause more problems.
As for the bare stems, am i supposed to trim them back or just leave them?
Again, thank you so much for your advice, it's much appreciated. You can probably tell, i have no idea what i'm doing
