Monstera ‘Monkey leaf’, known as Monstera adansonii or Adanson’s monstera, is a smaller version of the famous Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa). This plant species has only recently gained popularity as a houseplant having previously been considered tricky to keep. It is quite a fast-growing house plant, with new leaves produced every few weeks. It can be trained around a moss pole to make a climbing plant or allowed to trail over the edge of its pot.
A climbing plant with deep green leaves and distinctive holes in the leaves (which allow wind to pass through the foliage without risking too much damage), this plant spends its life climbing up the trunks and branches of trees in the forests of Central America and the Caribbean.
The leaves are smaller, rounder, thinner and less glossy than Monstera deliciosa.
All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
