Medium Monstera Deliciosa
The Monstera deliciosa (medium) is a green beauty that our NYC and NJ plant parents can’t stop talking about. Native to the forests of southern Mexico, the Monstera stands out because of its massive, bulb-shaped leaves that appear to have been sliced with a knife. The Deliciosa will brighten up any room you place it in!
Lush Color Palette
Splash the tropics into your home when you indulge in the monstera. It has deep, hunter green shades that envelop its leaves, complete with dashes of lime on some leaf edges, veins, and stems as a delicate highlight.
It Gets Big
Our clients love how good the Deliciosa looks in their homes. While at this medium size it’s only about two feet tall and one foot wide, it can get much, much bigger. This houseplant will work best in a larger room because if you care for it properly, it can end up reaching eight feet in height and over five feet in width! This is the reason for the plants name ‘monstera’ referring to the word ‘monstrous’ since it can reach even larger sizes when grown in nature.
One popular name among this green machine is the ‘swiss cheese plant’. This is because of the holes and slits that appear on the leaves from a very young stage. When the plant is very young, the plant's slits look more like holes. As it matures, the holes lengthen until they eventually look like rips in the leaves that sometimes extend from the vein in the middle all the way to the end of the leaf.
