Product Details

This beautiful luscious plant has been the talk of the town once again, along with Monstera deliciosa – whether they are two different plants or the same, and the debate remains unresolved!

One sees Monstera borsigiana as a synonym name for Monstera deliciosa, and that it is a variegated type – this means that its true name should be Monstera deliciosa var. borsigiana.

There is one theory some are more inclined to believe, and that is that M. borsigiana is a cultivar of M. deliciosa. One of the arguments is supported with how the vines grow – M. borsigiana grows as a vine right away while M. deliciosa develops vines only when it matures.

Whether you are team “same plant” or team “different plants”, here at LIVELY we are rooting for team “I will love and care for my plants, no matter the species.” Don’t you agree?

Quoting Darryl Cheng @houseplantjournal on Instagram to end this: “…instead of being disappointed that you don’t have a “true” deliciosa based on potentially inconclusive evidence, focus on helping whatever plant you have grow to its full potential!”
