Hi I purchased a monstera last week. This is the first one I’ve owned. It has these little holes in its leaves

I cannot see any insects on leaves and unsure of what might be causing them?

When Monstera deliciosa are young they will develop solid leaves, but as they get older, the leaves that grow will have holes in them. Then as the plant ages, the leaves that grow will develop the classic splits in them. This is quite normal. To keep your plant healthy, it should be in a position with good indirect light and the soil surface allowed to dry out before watering. A half strength fertiliser solution can be applied weekly. All the best with your Monstera.
