Monstera deliciosa (live Plant)
This listing is for ONE (1) live Monstera deliciosa PLANT. Each plant is grown from a seed in our Haiku, Maui garden and is about 8" high with a healthy root system. Your live Monstera plant will ship bare root (with no soil) Priority 3 day USPS mail on Mondays. All plants + seeds arrive with a Hawaii state Agricultural inspection stamp on the package.
A listing variation for a live 8" plant in a small terra cotta pot can be added to your order for this plant. Hawaii State Agriculture does not allow any soil to be shipped out of the state. If you choose the option for a plant to arrive in a terra cotta pot the plant will eventually have to be repotted with real potting soil. The plant will arrive in 100% Peat Moss which is allowed to be shipped.
Monstera is very easy to grow indoor houseplant. Please provide some sort of support (a wood stake) for this plant to grow upwards on. Here on Maui you will see them growing in the wild on trees and rocks, always growing upwards. Also called Split Leaf Philodendron or 'Swiss Cheese Plant'. Seed packets of Monstera are offered in a separate listing if you would like to have the fun of growing this plant from a seed.
Mature plants will actually produce a corn cob looking fruit (shown in listing photos). The inside is edible and if you are lucky you might find a seed or two-they are about the size of a pea and well hidden.
Monstera prefers shade. Please read up on how to grow this plant in your particular area. Provide some type of support, your Monstera will climb upwards.
Please keep in mind that most tropical plants prefer the room temperature kept between 75-85 degrees at all times.
