Monstera albo borsigiana has beautiful sectoral and speckled variegation which comes from a natural mutation in the plant whereas Monstera Thai constellation is grown through tissue culture. Leaves usually grow up to 30cm in length and variegation is unstable (it depends how much variegation is in the leaf node, variegation could be lost). It may be necessary to trim your plant to maintain variegation.


Pot: 17cm

Height: Approximately 40cm from base of pot.


Secrets of success


Temperature: 18-30°C.


Light: Bright indirect light.


Watering: Water when potting mix is almost dry - root rot is common with this plant. I'd recommend potting into a terracotta pot as it will soak up excess water and as that evaporates will aid humidity. 


Air humidity: Higher humidity, 60% and above.


Fertilising: Feed every few waterings in spring and summer; dilute synthetic fertiliser to half the recommended amount. 


Potting mix: Root rot is the number one cause of death for M.albo borsigiana so it is important to use a well-draining and airy mix. An Aroid mix with bark is ideal.


Use a sphagnum moss pole to support and train your Monstera.


This plant is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
