It is appropriate that the first of this series of aroid profiles should depict what is probably the finest foliage plant ever introduced into horticulture - Monstera deliciosa. Well known as a house plant in temperate regions, the species is at its most magnificent out of doors as a rambling vine or climber in tropical localities. Under the best circumstances the leaves are a meter in length with a thick glossy texture and more than a hundred of their characteristic perforations.
