Monstera Siltepecana is found in Mexico and around Central America. In the wild they grow up trees and change as they reach the sun. In its juvenile state the leaves are silvery with dark green veining and rather small. As the plant matures the veining disappears and the leaf turns a solid grey green color with fenestrations (holes) in the leaves.
Light: Medium to bright indirect light.
Water: Let the soil dry out half way before watering. They can easily go a week between waterings.
Soil: Well draining and moisture retaining, heavy peat, bark and lots of perlite.
Notes: Grow this plant on a plank or moss pole to see its mature state.
What to expect
You will receive a plant similar in size to the one you choose. I will not send you a smaller plant than the one you select. There will be variation in how each plant looks but I guarantee you will receive a quality plant with a well developed root system.
I recommend a heating pack when your shipment may encounter temperatures below 40 degrees. Please add one heating pack to your order if you feel this may occur.
Bare Root Packing Available
Your plant will be sent in a nursery pot unless otherwise specified. My favorite way of sending plants is with the root systems wrapped in moss and plastic without a nursery pot. This option is for people who know which potting medium they would like to put it in when it arrives. Please specify during checkout if you would like your plant shipped bare root.
