Appearance and characteristics of monstera
Monstera is a substantial climbing evergreen tropical plant that naturally scales large trees by attaching itself with long aerial roots. With majestic glossy, perforated and segmented leaves, the adult leaves grow up to 90cm in length from thick green stems. Juvenile leaves are smaller, with entire margins and no holes or perforations. Monstera can reach up to 20m in height in its natural habitat, but is more often seen growing indoors as a potted plant, where it will growing to around 4–5m tall and 2–3m wide.

Monstera is naturally found in the tropical Central and South American regions, from southern Mexico to Panama, along with the islands of the West Indies. Usually growing as an understorey plant in rainforests, monstera attaches itself to trees by aerial roots as it scrambles through the canopy. The spathes of cream flowers are only produced in warm or tropical climates on mature plants, and these take around a year to ripen and develop into cones of sweet-smelling edible fruit up to 25cm long.
