Should have bought some plant yo yos and let her finish completely. She looks good though.

Not OP but it’s a totem to support the plant and give its aerial roots something to grow on. Some people use moss. This one appears to be coir (? I could be incorrect). I purchased something really similar off of amazon because I wanted something that I could easily add height to as the plant grows. link

I'd use floral tape or fishing line until it attaches, the next couple of leaves should attach. If you do a moss pole you can use u hooks.
this one came with hooks and stays moist longer but I think the coco coir poles look better...
You can't post URLs like that. They are tied directly to a cookie on your computer. That's all the crap at the end. You have to shave it down like this.
Now the link will work.
Hey! If you're going to do LST on the branches, the tie downs do work for sure, but check these out! So much easier and bends any softer branch into a 90 degree angle any way you want.

These yoyo ties https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H3CG2CJ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Plant yoyos (like this) will hold individual colas up well, though the lines can get in the way. I've also used stakes, tomato cages look like a good option too.
Of course no problem! Don’t worry much they are hard to kill plant lol. Most monstera split leaves sometimes take years to split. Some don’t some do. There’s nothing to worry about. I have one split leave out of all 20 leaves and they are babies still. Yours looks like baby monstera almost similar to my new ones I just bought so time will come! :) I have 3 monsteras in my home and one propagated monstera starting to roots now. That’s good your monstera have Ariel roots! I didn’t repot mine when I put in moss pole. Most people prefer to wait and repot but I rather train mine to stay upright. There are some helpful YouTube videos how to put moss pole in without repotting. Mine is doing very well with moss pole without repotting. Mine is from amazon 24in.

That’s what I have. :)
My wife and I have 2 that have grown a lot, we use moss poles. We got a few from Amazon during the pandemic that the top is hollow so you can use the soil stale from the bottom of one and make like a 2x height pole, link below….

I use this with my monstera, they’re gentle but firm enough to keep it upright against the pole.

I use these. It comes with plastic ties (I'm not sure what they are called) that you can tie to Monster to the moss pole.
Monsteras are a vine and love to climb.
Also. I love using fish emulsion fertilizer (Neptune's Harvest Fish Fertilizer 2-4-1, 18 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009L8ZHVY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_G8JN7C3VV2PZJJX34QAQ)

More pole attachments (I have coir poles that can be added to mine), or a wall trellis, or those little plant clips (stick on wall, have little fingers to hold vines, 100 for $11 ).

Yeah usually I wait at least until the plant is 12 inches or so tall and then bend the main stalk down. Then throughout the life of it you can form your canopy. I train all the way until it starts budding, and even through flower sometimes. Use these clips also or something similar: Engineered Essentials USA Made The Original 90 Degree Plant Trainer- for Low Stress Training (LST) and Plant Training https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08KSMM9HS/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_7BP18MF6Y0A0RWFYDEP4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
They will change the whole training experience for you. Basically if you can't fit the stem around those clips its too early to train!
Sorry for the long message but figured I could help.
Decoroca Garden Flexible Wire Tie
I got them from my local hardware/grow store, but you can grab em off Amazon as well if needed. They're very gentle and provide decent grip within the soil to keep them seated.
I also bend a section at the bottom of each piece to create a barb that prevents them from pulling out on their own.

Yeah you do. The ones I use have stakes that are smaller in diameter than the pole exposed above ground. Check ‘em out!
The pvc ones are a bit different but same concept. I’ve seen recently some hybrid types with a plastic stake but coco coir substrate. I haven’t tried them but that may be a good option too.
My preference with the wood ones is that a) they’re not plastic and I just avoid as much plastic as I can even though in the US it’s somewhat futile, and b) they stack really snugly and stay straight when you extend the length. The coco coir instead of moss is nice too because IME it doesn’t rot or require replacement and it’s easily penetrable by the aerial roots yet somewhat sturdy/“grippy” (if that makes sense).
seen these b4?
Beautiful!! Good save!!
-The big guy in the back is a Monstera deliciosa. Monsteras are a fan favorite in the houseplant community because of their unique leaves. It's a tropical houseplant that loves humidity, so I mist mine with a spray bottle frequently, but let the soil dry out completely between waterings. You don't want the soil to be soggy or else it will develop root rot. They like bright indirect light and (obviously) can grow to be quite monstrous in size if you let them. They grow up other trees in the wild, rather than growing out like a bush, so personally I'd ditch the stakes and string it currently has supporting it. The string could start to cut into it's stems over time. I have mine growing on a moss pole like this
-The one in the middle is a Sansevieria trifasciata 'Laurentii', more commonly known as a verigated snake plant. (When a plant is "verigated," it just means has different coloration in it's leaves compared to others of it's species.) As another redditor mentioned, snake plants pretty much thrive on neglect. You'll be better off letting the soil dry out between waterings. They can tolerate low light conditions, but prefer indirect light.
-Lastly, the little guy in front looks to be a Hypoestes phyllostachya, more commonly known as a polka dot plant. They like to be in the shade when in the wild, so like the snake plant, put it in a spot with bright, indirect sun. They like to be watered relatively frequently, so don't let the soil completely dry out. If it gets too dry it'll wilt, but if it gets too soggy it'll rot. Just just be careful.
If you have any questions r/houseplants is an amazing group of plant nerds (like me 😅) who are more than happy to help out!! Good luck!! 🪴
Also it’s hard to tell what your pole is made of but it should be something that the plant can actually root to and that can hold a small amount of moisture but not rot. I like these - they’re sturdy and easily stackable too.

I just bought some self-adhesive plant clips . Haven’t used yet, received a golden I’m letting reacclimatize, then repot it up above a cabinet and plan to use the clips to support the vines across a door way (if they do take to the wall it will mark up the wall, but we aren’t moving so it’s time to let the vines take over -I plan to have at least one in each room)
Yes the white plant benders are deffinatly better than the red. Can stay longer on the plant before having ti remove. I got them from amazonAmazon
I got them off of amazon, they’re generically called “green plant ties” or “garden ties” the ones used here were bought from amazon with this link: YDSL Soft Plant Tie, Garden Wire Tie for Plants Heavy Duty Reusable Plant Twist Ties for Gardening Home Office (Green, 32.8 feet) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08BJ7T9LC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_FV7GDQFR453D96VMWXX2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
there's a bunch but i think i got ^
Here. I like them because they are stackable
I’m based in Germany so I probably can’t tell you stores to buy. This is the type that I have https://www.amazon.com/GROWNEER-Support-Extension-Climbing-Creepers/dp/B07W6SJBVC/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=coconut+pole&qid=1630859407&sr=8-5 and I find it works quite well. Go big because the way they grow they’ll need a large one. And getting this kind of pole is convenient because you can extend them by sticking them into one another and extend the pole you got.

I always call em fishhooks, though 😂
I love pothos because they’re super forgiving. My golden pothos was my first ever plant, and survived years of me not knowing what the heck I was doing. I like using these to help my pothos climb my wall. Moss poles are a great alternative if your plant may be moved.
Just find the biggest leaves and cut them off. Buy some pruning shears, titanium if possible. I would also looking investing into some Canopy Clips. You will be able to train your entire plant in 1 minute. Your welcome in advance. Lol
what are your thoughts on the LST clips they sell on Amazon?
Haha thank you for the options!
My local plant people Facebook page recommended these:

I love that I can add height to them without having to remove the previous. Fingers crossed!
Yes! It’s been so fun! And the leaves have gotten huge. I got mine on Amazon

Do you live in the US? I have a 2 ft moss pole from Amazon that I purchased for like $15 bucks! Where is it $135?
It was this one Mosser Lee ML1010H 24" Totem Pole Plant Support, 24 Inch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000UOCYFA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_4lllCbPA7Y3RK
Then you could just potentially buy an extension like this one : https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07W6SJBVC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_UcNGFbEWTG8B0
Or you could do it the harder route and build it up yourself with a bamboo stick and sphagnum moss or coco and tie it onto it yourself :)
Careful with that thin wire. It'll cut into the stems. If you can, grab some of the thick, bendy, rubber coated wire off Amazon or elsewhere. Otherwise it looks like you have three right idea. Bend and move/remove leaves blocking new growth.
I figured I'd try to do it while the plant is still young! I definitely think I like the look of taller monstera deliciosa plants as opposed to wider. I got it from Amazon! It's a coir pole, not moss but it came with 2. So as the plant grows, you can put the second pole in the top of the first pole to extend it.
Here is a link to the poles! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YVJC7NF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Get some yellow plant yoyos on Amazon. They hang from the top of a tent or whatever. It's a retractable hook on nylon fishing line . You hook it on your heavy flowers to support them.
You can buy a moss pole similar to this one: https://www.amazon.com/Mosser-Lee-ML1010-Totem-Support/dp/B000UOCYFA/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=moss+pole&qid=1558588327&s=gateway&sr=8-1
They also sell the same one at Home Depot. It comes with some metal fastening pins to pin the plant to the pole (you can eventually remove them once it's trained). You can also make your own out of a stick and sphagnum moss (there are plenty of YouTube videos) and secure with plant tape.
