Description

An easy to care for, classic house plant, the Monstera Deliciosa is characterized by its bold green leaves that develop ridges and holes called “fenestrations” as they mature. This plant can adapt to most lighting conditions, but will grow faster and produce larger leaves if placed in medium to bright indirect light. For the most impressive growth, provide them with as much humidity as possible and give them something to climb!
