Monstera Adansonii 'Monkey Mask'
Monsteras have been popular for decades, with their perforated leaves that make them instantly recognisable. Their more mature leaves develop their perforations as a way of allowing rain water to pass down to the base of the plant. The Monkey Mask Monstera leaves that are ever-so-slightly crinkled which gives them an interesting texture.
Light: Avoid placing in direct sunlight as it will scorch the leaves. A Monstera will enjoy a brightly lit room, although will not fuss too much if in a moderately lit room.
