Monstera Dubia on Plank - Rare and Unusual

Product ref: H22228

Availability: Out of stock

Monstera dubia is one of the smaller, lesser known monstera varieties, but it’s very beautiful and makes a great addition to any monstera lover’s houseplant collection.

You can recognize monstera dubia by the small, heart-shaped leaves, speckled with both light and dark green. Since juvenile plants (the kind you’ll likely see indoors) lack the iconic monstera slits and holes, you may not even recognize it as a monstera at first! But the gorgeous light and dark green patterned leaves make this a beautiful plant in its own right, even without the fenestration.

Monstera dubia is sometimes called the “shingle plant” because its leaves lie so flat against the trees it climbs in the wild, creating the appearance of shingles!

One of the most fascinating things about monstera dubia is that this plant undergoes an incredible transformation when it reaches maturity and is exposed to bright sunlight. In the wild, this occurs when a vine has climbed all the way up a tree and reaches the sunlight above the canopy.

These small, heart-shaped, variegated leaves turn deep green and form massive fenestrations that take up most of the area of the leaf! It doesn’t even look like the same plant anymore.

However, this takes years to occur and is rarely seen in indoor plants, because they are rarely allowed to grow that large and receive enough sunlight for this metamorphosis to happen, so we challenge you to buy one and send us a picture in a few years time!

Supplied in approx 1.5-2 litre nursery containers.
