Monstera deliciosa var. borsigiana albo-variegata

Regular price $199.99

Monstera deliciosa var. borsigiana albo-variegata is truly a showstopper.  The  beautiful variegation complements the fenestrated leaves that get more elaborate as the plant matures.  It achieves a brighter white coloration than Monstera deliciosa 'Thai Constellation'; however, the variegation is less stable, sometimes going all white or disappearing.  But when this happens, the more typical variegated pattern usually comes back in a leaf or 2 and in the worst case can be cut back to stimulate it.

Technically, deliciosa is a synonym for borsigiana so this variety should be labeled as Monstera deliciosa var. albo-variegata; however, it's also commonplace to refer to this variety as Monstera borsigiana albo, Monstera albo or small form Monstera albo.  

Like most Monstera, this variety prefers moist but well-draining soil and some humidity. As it climbs, it should be staked or allowed to climb up moss poles.  In higher humidity environments, numerous aerial roots will form which gives the plants a beautiful look.

Please note that due to the nature of variegation, each plant is a unique individual.  There will be some variability from plant to plant and even from one leaf to another on the same plant.  For this reason, we are unable to guarantee a specific amount of variegation especially younger plants.

This product is considered an Intermediate Tropical plant.  Please see our Aroid Shipping guidelines and Shipping and Guarantees policy.
