Name: Monstera 'Esquelito'
Monstera make wonderful houseplants for beginner plant caretakers! They are easy going, resilient, and come in a variety of colors and shapes. Native to Central and South America and the Caribbean, this family ranges from plants with trailing leaves to those that grow in denser bushes of leaves.
Monstera 'Esquelito' is an incredibly rare variety with enormous fenestrated leaves which increase in size as the plant matures. Though the fenestrations are not quite as elaborate as the famous Monstera 'Obliqua', the plant itself is much larger in stature and is a much more tolerant and vigorous grower. This variety is native to Rainforests of Costa Rica, and as such, is thought to have developed to grow larger fenestrations due to growing closer to the forest floor. Since cloud cover is very dense at the top of the forest canopy, these large fenestrations help light and water to reach every part of the plant.
