The Monstera Lechleriana are highly sought after that are grown for their unique foliage. They are very easy to grow tropical plants that require little care indoors or out. Although all Monsteras are considered vines, Lechleriana has a trailing quality that makes it a good pick for hanging baskets or training around a room.
Lechleriana is a viney beauty unique with distinct leaf fenestration (holes in their foliage) much smaller than the adansonii. As this plant matures and climbs upwards, it grows larger foliage and its fenestration becomes more prolific.
