Product Details
Monstera is a tropical plant from the Araceae family. Its name, as one might guess, comes from the Latin meaning “abnormal” because of its odd-looking, perforated leaves that are often punched through with holes. Its leaves are evergreen and extremely shade-tolerant. It is a famous indoor foliage plant. It is commonly used as potted ornamentals in Europe, America and Japan to decorate living rooms and windowsills. This member of the arum family Araceae is an epiphyte with aerial roots, able to grow up to 20 m high with large, leathery, glossy, heart-shaped leaves 25–90 cm long by 25–75 cm broad.
