Borsigiana 'Albo' Variegata (Monstera Deliciosa Variegated)
*PLEASE NOTE: You will receive the exact plant as pictured
This incredibly rare, elusive, and sought after variety of Monstera, produces attractive variegated leaves marbled with white colouring. It somewhat smaller, more manageable variety than the standard Monstera Deliciosa, and is highly recommended for indoor growing. As an impressive houseplant, it has a spreading/climbing habit, is easy-to-grow and generally low maintenance plant.
THIS SPECIFIC PLANT: WOW! This is not your average Variegated Monstera! This stunner of a specimen has a predominantly white colour, and is still actively growing strong with it's beautiful splashes of green. It is a TIP cutting, with 5 leaves, and two roots that have been propagating in moss. The latest leaf, although appearing pure white, has a small degree of green in the middle vein, that is visible when viewing underneath. Although slower growing, (due to high levels of variegation), it has great potential, to continue to produce beautiful leaves. Please only purchase if you are researched and/or experienced in propagation, as this specific cutting will require the right care in order to thrive. Additionally, please note the minor imperfections of the plant, ie. minor bruising. and spots.
CARE: It will require further propagation in order to produce a sturdy root system, so keeping it in a greenhouse, under a grow light, with a humidifier, and heat mat is highly recommended. Keep moist during the warmer month periods and generally drier during the winter cooler months. Leaves with a lot of variegation need protection from sunlight. When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. Fertiliser (plant food) can be applied as granular slow release pellets or as a liquid.
