About Monstera 'Albo'

Monstera deliciosa is a species of flowering plant native to the tropical rainforests of southern Mexico down to Colombia. Both the root and leaf have a long history of use in traditional medicine. In Mexico, a leaf or root infusion is taken daily to relieve arthritis. In Martinique, the root is used in remedies for snakebites. 🤒 The holes in Monstera leaves let water drip close to the roots, and they absorb the scattered beams of sunlight that make it down through the forest canopy. Their fruit also tastes like a mix of pineapple and banana! 🍍🍌

As the plant is expensive, most people think it’s also a difficult plant, however it’s super easy, the important thing is sufficient lighting and a good potting mix with regular watering.

It was fun to search for a variegated one and it’s super easy to take care of. Just use chunky soil and a terracotta pot!
