Monstera: A Field Guide

From the Latin for “abnormal,” Monstera is instantly recognizable indoors and out.

With perforated leaves spanning three feet, the most popular Monstera—M. deliciosa—features dark green, shiny leaves. Holes in the oblong leaves have earned it the nickname Swiss Cheese Plant. In the wilds of the jungle, Monstera can climb more than 60 feet into the tree canopy. Can’t afford that kind of space at home? Simply grab a couple of leaves from the florist and put them in a vase.
