Also known as swiss cheese plant, mexican plant, hurricane plant.
Monstera Pinnatipartita is a rare evergreen and beautiful climbing plant originally from South America that looks similar to Monstera Deliciosa. It has divided leaves when it matures and produces white waxy flowers that along with its aerial roots, make it look wildly.
Monstera Pinnatipartita must not be placed in the direct sun for a long period because it will burn its leaves. Also, be mindful when getting a monstera home because they are mildly toxic if ingested, meaning that you should take precautions if you have pets or children. I've never had a bad experience with my pets myself because they have an instinct, but I always try to see how they react the first days after adding this plant to my collection.
It is so recommended to use totems or to place it in a spot where it can trail to maximize its growth. As a houseplant it doesn't grow much compared to taking it outside, where it can take a whole big corner.It is so recommended to use totems or to place monsteras in a spot where they can trail to maximize its growth.
