Plant D Monstera standleyana
The plant in the picture is the one you are buying. This plant has excellent variegation.
Monstera standleyana is also known overseas as the cobra plant and is one of the most sought after aroid varieties. It produces deep green leaves with a creamy white, verging on a hint of yellow variegation, which can be represented as either flecks throughout the leaf or comprise of exactly half a leaf. As each new leaf unfurls, you literally hold your breath to see what mother nature has delivered.
This one does like to be supported as it grows with a totem, this will also encourage the leaves to reach their maximum size. This one likes partial shade and moist, well drained soil.It likes warm conditions and if possible, a source of humidity. Be sure not to over water this one, we like it to dry a little between drinks of water.
This plant measures approx 25cm in height from soil level to tip and approx 18cm in diameter from left to right
