ELEANOR - MONSTERA DELICIOSA
Eleanor is a Monstera Deliciosa. She comes in full size, as well as the 4 & 6" juvenile. As a juvenile, she doesn't have split leaves with fenestration yet, but eventually she will! She's sometimes called a split-leaf philodendron, but that's actually an inaccurate name! She's relatively easy care plant, and likes bright, indirect light. She's super rewarding, as she'll put out new leaves regularly. She's also sometimes called a Mexican Breadfruit (in the wild she produces fruit, but indoors she pretty much never fruits). Her leaves start out not split, and as she ages she starts to put off new leaves with fenestrations (splits) as she grows. The little leaves will eventually finish and dry up, and new ones grow.
• Light: Bright indirect light - make sure she doesn't sunburn.
• Water: She's a tropical plant - she likes humidity. Make sure you keep her soil damp, and keep misting her to get that lovely humidity up!
• Considerations: Use a well-draining soil, and select a planter with drainage - never let her sit in a mud puddle!
She comes in juvenile as well as fully fenestrated adult, and has lots of pot options. All pots are white!
