A beautiful South American native that produces leaves with pronounced fenestrations. This Monstera has a more delicate, trailing habit than it's cousin Monstera deliciosa. Like it's cousin it produces new leaves that are lime green but unlike the glossy green leaves of M. deliciosa these guys produce matte green leaves which, in the right light appear slightly velvety. A truly spectacular and easy plant!
Wait until the top 2-3cm centimetres of soil in the pot has dried out before watering heavily. Water less in in the cooler month to replicate the tropical dry season. They're pretty tolerant of under watering but you will see noticeable increases in growth during the summer months if you remember to water regularly.
Bright indirect light and a humid position is what these guys love. In cooler climates their leaves may turn yellow and fall off over winter, especially if they are kept outside however they will produce new leaves as they weather warms. If they do shed their leaves just reduce their water a bit.
The stems are about 30cm long when you receive them but this is a fast growing plant. It will continue to produce larger leaves as they mature, especially if provided a stake or totem to climb.
Greeting your Monstera adensonii
