Description

Monstera adansonii is a stunning tropical climbing Aroid with the perforated foliage that is characteristic of the genus Monstera. It has smaller, less leathery leaves and many more holes per leaf than Monstera delicosa and it is an altogether more manageable houseplant, more suitable for smaller apartments and modern living spaces. A naturally climbing plant, Monstera adansonii can also be placed on a high viewpoint or in a hanging container to create a trailing plant.

It requires bright light but not direct sun and warm humid air. For many, the best indoor spot for Monstera adansonii will be in the bathroom.

Monstera adansonii is sometimes sold as Monstera obliqua, a different and much rarer plant altogether. A Dutch company is selling incorrectly labeled plants under the marketing name Monstera obliqua 'Monkey Mask'.
