Monstera deliciosa vs Monstera borsigiana vs Thaumatophyllum bipinnatifidum (Video)

Basically I just want to highlight the difference between some of the philodendron species together with Monstera sp.

What I would recommend is to buy a perfect specimen where you can note the fully formed adult plant of Monstera deliciosa as the juvenile can be tricky to be identified as it may be a different form of phillodendron or tetrasperma which all may have similar looking foliage shape when their are a seedling.

 It also may be slightly more expensive than a seedling but it is still worthed it considering the years you may have to wait to see the foliage formation taking place. Knowing another factor of being a seedling - they are still sensitive and may die easily in comparison to a fully matured stable plant.

I love monstera with its intricate humongous leaves which are so delight to watch,have u seen its flower that is also beautiful.But sadly mine died recently which was neglected and kept in full sun...I think its best time to plant new since its monsoon.Happy gardening

Thanks Arun Goyal - Monstera do prove challenging and I for a fact don't grow them in my garden due to the giant size plant. Thanks again for dropping by.
