Although its name may imply that it is some sort of dubious monster, this extraordinary climbing plant is quite the opposite. Its lovely, two-inch, heart-shaped leaves have silver variegation, making it the shining crown of any plant collection. Given the proper love and care, these leaves can grow even bigger, topping out between five and ten inches in diameter!
This plant is a climber, and will easily wind its way up any pole or moss wall you put nearby. Unlike other vining plants, the leaves of this one lay flat against the growing surface, earning it the nickname "shingle plant."
Hailing from South and Central America, Monstera dubia likes high heat, high humidity and lots of bright, indirect light. It needs well-draining soil that also allows the roots to stay moist, but not so moist that they are just sitting in pools of water. Water only when the top two inches of the soil are dry.
For best results, repot your Monstera dubia every two years, or when its roots start crawling out of the drainage holes in the bottom of its pot. Those roots like to stretch, so make sure not to let them get too crowded.
Well-maintained Monstera dubias can live for many years, so you will have plenty of time to spend with this shiny, silver-streaked specimen.

We ship from Los Angeles, and we only ship within the United States. We do not ship to Hawaii / Canada / International. We typically ship on Mondays or Tuesdays to avoid plants being stuck in transit over the weekends, but we may sometimes ship later in the week depending on order volume. With that said, we cannot guarantee or control delivery time. If delivery time is a concern, please opt for upgraded shipping.
We take great care when packaging and preparing your plants for shipment. They'll be shipped either in a nursery pot in soil or sphagnum moss, or shipped bare root wrapped in sphagnum moss or other damp material to retain moisture. We also add poly-fil around the plant for padding, then wrap it in bubble wrap, and finally add packing peanuts for extra cushion to ensure a safe and clean transport.
We also offer local pick-up if you're in the Los Angeles area.
Very well rooted small dubia, with a long runner. Cut off the runner to make node cuttings, set the main plank up on a plank and is doing well.
