Favourite Plant of the Week - Monstera deliciosa variegata

Monstera deliciosa variegata

An easy choice this week, and a houseplant rather than one out in the garden, Monstera deliciosa variegata.

We have had this plant for a good few years, it doesnt get the really large leaves that some do, and came back with us from a holiday in Madeira, where they seem to be everywhere. We had asked for one at one of the many plant stalls in the Market in central Funchal, using a photo of one we had seen in a garden to explain what we wanted. They were all out on the stall, so the owner had pop home to get one for us to collect later.

This is kept in a North facing room, so although fairly bright, it doesnt seem to burn with the lack of direct sun.



  1. Really pretty. I could admire the variegation on that leaf for hours.

    The neighbor in the back has a M. deliciosa growing in the ground. Must be 40-50 years old. The amazing thing is, it is not irrigated!
