The Monstera series captures the large expansive nature of the leaves as they spill into the frame. The series comes in a range of colours reminiscent of a Fruit Salad , like its common name suggests.
The name monstera means “monster” or “monstrous” and refers to the size of these plants. Deliciosa refers to the fruit it produces, and that adds up to monstera deliciosa, or delicious monster.
Monsteras belong to the arum/araceae family, which also includes peace lilies and calla lilies. They’re also a relative to pothos and philodendron and are often, though mistakenly, called split-leaf philodendron.

There are 22 different species of monstera out there with several different varieties within those species, such as variegated varieties. Monstera deliciosa is the most common variety that you’ll find in homes and in local nurseries and is by far the most popular ornamental, as it also produces the Mexican breadfruit, which earned this plant the nickname “fruit salad plant” because the fruit is said to taste like a fruit salad! This fruit smells like a cross between a banana and a pineapple when it’s ripe and looks like a scaly piece of corn on the cob. When those scales fall off, you know it’s ripe!
