A lesser known and harder to find variety of Monstera, the Monstera Dubia is recognizable for its small, heart-shaped leaves with both light and dark green variegation. It gets its common name of 'Shingle Plant' from its leaves that lie so flat against anything it climbs that it creates the appearance of shingles. Unlike most other Monstera, juvenile leaves of these plants lack the iconic fenestrations, so you may not recognize it as a Monstera at first glance, but its uniquely patterned leaves and growth patterns make it beautiful in its own right. This plant appreciates bright, indirect light and high humidity for best growth. 

Available in 4" nursery pot mounted to wooden plaque.
