Yellow leaves can also indicate that your Monstera needs to be fertilized. I recommend only fertilizing your plant during the Spring or Summer.

2. Help! Why Are My Monstera Leaves, Turning Black?

Black Monstera leaves are usually caused by root rot, which is a sign of overwatering. To fix this issue, you’ll need to take your plant out of its pot and cut away any mushy or darker roots than the others.
