Monstera adansonii is a fast-growing, enjoyable plant to keep! It is not a fussy plant and great for beginners. The leaves have the signature Monstera holes in them and are a beautiful rich green. You can train the plant up a trellis or let it hang beautifully over a shelf.
Monstera is a genus in the Araceae family, also known as the Aroid family. There are about 45 species and they are native to the tropical Americas. The signature ‘holes’ in the leaves are traits of many of the species, mainly in the mature form when the plant starts to put out larger leaves. Some species have juvenile leaves that appear with no holes and can look quite different altogether from the mature leaves. To encourage larger and mature leaf growth, stake your Monstera and allow the plant to climb with its aerial roots.
