*This plant sits in a bucket on a chair in a west-facing window. It's about one foot from the window. I water it at the roots whenever Greg tells me to water it.*

This is a CRAZY and COOL plant! This is the Monstera Dubia - not the little Hayi. This Monster of a Dubia has more than quadrupled in size since I've gotten it. The little piece of wood that I was using to help it climb has been composted and my husband got a nice cedar fence plank for it. When the leaves are new and the roots are small, I tie the stem to the plank with floral tape for a few weeks. Then I can take it off because the plant connected is looking for new real estate!

I really like the way this plant climbs and wraps around the plank. It is really unique.

This plant grows SO FAST. I got it at the end of June and now (end of November) it has literally grown at least 4.5 feet (I measured)
