Monstera deliciosa is arguably the most quintessential modern day houseplant, easily recognized by everyone as it has been used in prints on wallpapers, notebook covers and even pillowcases! The beautiful large-leafed plant has heart-shaped leaves with elegant slits and holes referred to as fenestrations. Under the right conditions, the plant can get very large and can have more than one row of holes.
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.
