A cute name for a cute plant and so called due to the (vague?) resemblance of the leaves to that of a cheeky monkey.

A close relative of the Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa), the Philodendron Monkey Mask is often also referred to as Philodendron or Monstera Obliqua, however a true Obliqua is more hole than leaf and nowhere near as attractive as this little chap.

Monstera adansonii is easy to care for so long as it has moist, warm conditions. The plant has a vining habit and often grows entwined in and around itself, with new leaves and vines sometimes growing through the holes in existing leaves. This can lead to leaves tearing which gives the plant a shabby chic rather that pristine appeal.

Horty Hints

Growing old with grace! As your plant grows the lower leaves naturally turn yellow. Don’t panic, simply allow the plant to use them up, pulling them off when they have dried.

Caught in a trap! New leaves start off curled-up, but be sure these aren't trapped in any fully grown leaf holes, as they might rip as they open.

Wipe the leaves occasionally to remove accumulated dust. Leaves do tear and bruise easily, giving the plant a rugged, worn appearance rather than a pristine look.
