«Native to the rainforests of Central America, the big, bold Monstera deliciosa plant is also known as the «»split-leaf philodendron.»» This easy-to-grow climbing evergreen can be found in many designer spaces for its «»wow»» factor. Indoors, the plant has a moderate growth rate and can grow in height about 1 to 2 feet a year. Its naturally glossy large heart-shaped leaves have a characteristic split. You’ll also spot intricate aerial roots growing out of the soil which benefit the plant by supporting the stems that hold leaves that can grow to 3 feet long. Plant outdoors in the right zone at any time during the year and it will also produce tannish-cream flowers pollinated by bees and edible juicy fruit with the combined flavor of pineapple and banana. However, fruiting is not common in houseplants.»
