Monstera dubia is a rare shingling aroid native to Central and South America, known for its striking foliage that changes dramatically as the plant matures from juvenile to adult. When mature, the foliage is variegated with silvery-blue patches, and the leaves lie flat against a tree, rather than fanning outwards, a growth habit known as shingling. Our Monstera dubia are rooted in soil and allowed to begin shingling up a cedar board. As they climb, the foliage will continue to grow larger, and, provided sufficient humidity, to lie flat against its climbing surface.
• Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Incorporate a taller board or moss pole when repotting so your plant can continue to climb. High humidity encourages continued shingling
