Monstera dubia - rare botanical species, endemic to the tropical forests of Mexico and South America. It is a remarkable plant, due to its unique appearance, growth style, but also the spectacular transformation it undergoes when it matures.
In its juvenile form, the plant has small and medium-sized leaves, heart-shaped, with silver variegation, almost reflective, interrupted by green veins. The newly opened leaves also have a fascinating appearance - they are colored in shades of silver-green, semi-transparent.
As it matures, the transformation of the leaves is dramatic - they become elongated, the silver variegation begins to fade, fenestrations and perforations specific to the genus appear. The adult leaf reaches a length of 38 cm.
