- Botanical Name: Philodendron Monstera deliciosa
- Common Names: Monstera
- Description: Native to the tropical forests of Central and South America, these plants have glossy, heart shaped leaves which develops its unique splits in its maturity. It is a climbing, evergreen perennial vine that is perhaps most noted for its large perforated leaves on thick plant stems and its long cord-like aerial roots.
- Care: This plant's ideal light condition is bright, indirect sunlight, which makes it a perfect indoor plant. When grown outdoors, it is better to put this plant in a partially shady spot. Too much direct sunlight would burn its leaves.
