Hey there! I’m new to the forum, but intro’s later because I need help. I live in Texas and we recently had a winter freeze, my house lost power for 65+ hours and it got down to 40 degrees in here!! I keep my monstera adansonii inside and it’s been doing GREAT until this freeze. Now the leaves are starting to turn black. I’ve already cut off 2 of the worst leaves but it seems to keep turning. I am so sad because this is my favorite :( I’m not sure what to do or how to help her. She’s just a baby any advice is much appreciated!

Looks like it got frosted. The roots look good, but I have had them die back in shipping through the cold. Adamii are very tough and prolific growers. If the air roots continue to look a healthy white color you can snip the stems below the node and place in water to root. This can help make for a fuller plant later and I have had to use this method to rescue plants that wanted to succumb to shipping shock. I now have several cuttings in a glass of water in the kitchen window. Good luck, and be sure to underwater the plant. Although they thrive as starts in water as plants they hate being over watered.
