Monstera Albo borsigiana

Variegated monstera varieties are making a splash on social media and the houseplant industry, and one of the most sought-after varieties is monstera deliciosa borsigiana, aka monstera albo. 

This subspecies of monstera deliciosa is slightly smaller than a true deliciosa and doesn’t have the characteristic “ruffles” where the stem attaches to the leaf. But the cell mutation responsible for the variegation produces some truly spectacular blocks and splashes of white among the green.

There are no seeds for monstera albo, and this plant can only be propagated from cuttings and by separation. Luckily, these plants tend to retain their variegation through cuttings more readily than other species of variegated monsteras.
