  Aroid with yellow variegation ?

Hey Tom,

Want to take a stab at this? I bought this at the IAS show this past year. There was no tag. Asked Mary Nock and a couple others, but nobody could figure this puppy out. It does appear to be variegated.

Thanks, Jude

Dear Jude: I would guess that it is a Monstera but could not make out the venations well enough. Send a close up of the lower blade surface so that I can see the venation. Philodendron has closely parallel veins. Monstera has net-veined leaves.

Hi Tom, how are you?

They must have gotten lost in the internet wastelands.

I am attaching them here - hopefully these new photos will help. Please let

me know if they don't show up.

Best, Jude

Dear Jude: I admit that I don’t know this Monstera. It is likely only preadult and M. adansonii comes to mind as the most likely determination but I am copying Marco Cedeño from Costa Rica who
has a lot more familiarity with juvenile and preadult forms of Monstera than I do.

Marco, if you have any information for Jude please let him know and copy me please.

Abrasos,

Tom

Thank you Tom for your response, as always!

I look forward to hearing any further input you guys might have.

The only M. adansonii I have seen (and have) have many small holes, even in immature form. I'm including a photo for some further professional input.

Have a great night, Jude

Picture is of what I've always assumed to be M. adansonii/friedrichstalii.
