Big, bold and beautiful are some of the common descriptions for the Monstera deliciosa plant. Native to rainforests in Central America, the Monstera deliciosa displays large glossy heart-shaped leaves with characteristic splits throughout the foliage. You'll also spot intricate aerial roots growing out of the soil which help the plant support the stems of the leaves. Generally seen in glossy interior magazines and stunning landscape projects as the ‘wow’ feature plant to any home, these easy-to-grow climbing evergreen plants are a must-have in your space.
