Monstera Dubia – Variegated Shingling plant
Monstera Dubia is a fast-growing aroid (an established plant will put out 1 new leaf per week under the right conditions).
Monstera dubia (Shingle Plant) are characterized by small heart-shaped leaves with both light green and dark green variegation and the leaves lie flat against whatever they are growing on. In the wild, they develop fenestrations and lose their variegation. Mature leaves hang from the vine.
Leaves are beautifully variegated green with shimmering silver streaks. They literally sparkle in the sunlight! It prefers bright, indirect sunlight and semi-frequent watering. Mechanical wear to leaves is as shown in pictures. Stem, node and roots are healthy.
This is not a houseplant for beginners. It is fast and easy to grow under the right conditions, and will need to be trained onto a mosspole or totem as soon as it is planted. New growth will be small if the plant is not trained onto growing support.
How to grow:
Watering: Water your Monstera when the top few inches of the potting medium is dry.
Lights: Don’t place your Monstera near a drafty window or heating or cooling vents. If the leaf edges start to brown, more humidity is needed.
Fertilizers: Use organic fertilizer, in every 3 months.
