Monstera deliciosa is native to southern Mexico and Panama. It is a hardy and easy to care for plant known by many names, but most commonly the “Monsera Delicosa." The “deliciosa” part of the plant’s name comes from the pineapple-like fruit it bears in its natural habitat. The unique development of ridges and holes on its more mature leaves are known as fenestrations.

Meet the Mighty Monstera

Monstera is a genus of 59 species of flowering plants in the arum family, Araceae, native to tropical regions of the Americas. The genus is named from the Latin word for "monstrous" or "abnormal", and refers to the unusual leaves with natural holes that members of the genus have.

Monsteras are easy to care for and can grow just about anywhere in the home, but will thrive in areas of bright indirect light (direct sun will burn their leaves!) Water every two weeks or when soil feels dry. Help them to thrive by periodically wiping down their leaves with a soft cloth and leaf shine and also attaching the aerial roots to a moss pole.
