Philodendron, Monstera Deliciosa

Description While this epiphyte plant - which is native to the rainforests in south America is a flowering plant, it's primarily grown indoors for its attractive foliage and the height it grows up to. It's a plant that becomes a focal point of a room once it matures.

Indoor Care Monstera are fairly easy to care for and maintain, however, if the right conditions and care instructions are not followed the plant leaves can look very unattractive. This species has aerial roots which are there to support the plant growing. These roots which hang from a stem have to be pushed into the compost and they can be placed on a moss stick (plastic tube with netting filled with peat), if you wish the plant to grow very tall. They like warm environments, bright, indirect light, and being watered every 1-2 weeks, with soil completely drying out between waterings. 
Toxicity Toxic to pets and mildly toxic to humans. 
Dimensions Available in 6" pots, or in 1gal pots in varying scale (short, tall and giant).
