Monstera Deliciosa


Category: Tag:


I’m the Monstera Deliciosa. I’m kind of weird yet incredibly trendy, the name Monstera actually means “strange” in Latin, but I think that’s why people love me. My unique leaves are heart-shaped when they are young and transform with age into my iconic holes and notches pattern. I am low maintenance and quite resilient, if you get busy I’ll forgive you if you occasionally forget to water me. My favorite thing about myself is that my large leaves covert CO2 into oxygen during the day to provide you with healthy, clean air.
