Beautiful plant! A bit of a slower grower than regular monstera, but I’ve not found any other difficulties growing it

The model, the legend, the icon. Really a beautiful plant. It’s relatively easy to care for. It’s a fighter and I personally think it’s tough to kill but the white parts like to turn brown.

This little chunk has grown a root and a sprout super fast, I think the keiki paste helped it along. Can’t wait to post a picture of an actual leaf soon

I find it nearly impossible to kill, even if I neglect it, however the white parts brown easily, so I recommend giving it more sun and watering with distilled water! Overall good plant, but I wouldn’t spend a lot of money on it 💕
