Hi there! I love love love plants, and I was recently gifted a monstera albo “cutting” and I am so afraid to kill this thing! So I came looking for some advice! The monstera has one leaf and a node that is about 1 1/2 inches long, and the stem has fairly clean white coloration, and it has one large wounding dark brown root, and a small light color one as well. It originally came in what I think was spagnum moss, and I just transferred it to a slightly larger pot, that has a hole for drainage. I put it in a mixture the plant shop I got it from sold, that contains soil, spagnum moss, pearlite and other goodies in it. I have two spots I can possibly put it in, one is next to my humidifier, which is next to a window, but not in front, or directly in front of my window on my desk, where it will get a fair amount of light as the sun sets. So I suppose my question is, where should I put it, and am I doing the right thing so far, and what and when the next steps will be! I was going to attach a photo but it won’t let me, lemme know if further description is needed! Thank you and thanks for listening to me ramble.

Greetings, welcome to the Forums.

Monstera deliciosa 'Albo-variegata' wants bright, indirect light, good drainage, regular irrigation, and an occasional application of a complete, liquid fertilizer.

As for which location would work better. Judging only from the their descriptions, both could work well. Perhaps try the brighter location near the window first. Some direct light at sunset shouldn't be a problem and more indirect light overall could be beneficial.
Of course, do observe the plant every day after moving to be sure it is adapting well to the spot chosen.
