Monstera | Deliciosa

Split Leaf Philodendron, Breadfruit Tree, Swiss Cheese Plant

The Monstera Deliciosa is a celebrity plant, if there ever were one. Its signature oblong cutouts on dark, glossy, heart-shaped leaves make it one of the most recognizable of all tropical plants. The holes in the leaves are called "fenestrations", and are the mark of a more mature plant. Juvenile leaves are much smaller and windowless. The exact reason for the holes is debated, but prevailing theories suggest the holes support improved light absorption in the limited sunlight of the forest floor.

Fun fact: the Monstera Deliciosa plant reproduces in a very interesting manner. In the wild, the male portion of the flower heats to a temperature of 93.2F to attract the scarab beetle, thus increasing the probability of pollination. It just so happens that the warmth also provides the ideal environment for beetle reproduction, too! (wink, wink)
