Variegated Monstera

Variegated Monstera

In recent years houseplants have exploded in popularity - from architectural fiddle leaf fig to the timeless mother in law’s tongue succulent or the quirky monstera deliciosa, people all around the world have been finding and caring for their own indoor plants. This started with the classics, but as with anything like this, plant lovers are now looking for something new: ultra rare plants. The obsession with plants right now seems to be anything with variegation, and the more albino the better. The holy grail of these variegated plants at the moment is the monstera. Large variegated monsteras are currently selling on ebay for thousands of dollars. If you are looking for a variegated monstera plant for sale, don’t worry, there are often small cuttings available for much cheaper prices.

My variegated monstera πŸƒ I get so many questions about him (I've actually addressed them in my highlighted stories), so I thought I'd answer the most common ones again: βž–Found him on Gumtree, the original plant I was after had been sold in less than 24hrs, however the seller had another one (mine) that she hadn't listed yet. I picked it up a few hours later πŸ˜‚ Mine was more mature than the one I initially enquired about too πŸ‘πŸ» βž– It cost $325. Yes, I know, but that's actually a great price compared to the others that are for sale, in Perth especially (WA has strict quarantine laws) βž– Where can you find one? Gumtree, eBay and Facebook groups are your best bet. Some stores occasionally have them but they usually sell out instantly Mine (yet to be named πŸ˜‚) has pushed out two new leaves since being under my care which is incredible - it's growing faster than my other regular monsteras! I thought it would grow much slower because of the variegation - less chlorophyll (the white parts of the leaf don't produce any) which means the plant can't convert sunlight into sugar as much as a regular solid green leaf can. I'm VERY happy and relieved that this plant's variegation is quite balanced with white and green, because too much white means the plant probably won't survive or won't be able to grow, and too much green and you've just spent hundreds of dollars on a plant that might revert back to being a regular green monstera πŸ˜… Definitely something to take into consideration if you're looking to buy one. A 50/50 split of white and green is ideal! If you have any other questions, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them! πŸ’š #variegatedmonstera
