  Variegated Monstera deliciosa question
From: Cyndi Krall <cyndikrall at aol.com> on 2019.08.18 at 14:48:50(24226)
I have been trying for years to find a variegated Monstera deliciosa. I have tons of a smaller leaved version I was under the impression was Borsigiana, but when I google M. variegated, albo and borsigiana, I get a lot of conflicting results. I was looking for the regular variegated version of the standard large-leaved Monstera deliciosa.

Can anyone tell me what the correct way to tell the difference is?

Thanks,

Cyndi

Can’t tell you the difference, but the large leaf seed is at Whatcom Seed Company in Eugene, Oregon.

I've been wondering this, too - I have several different "forms" as it were. Some get leaves that are 3 feet across, and others not even a foot. On top of that, some vine, and others are more trunk-ish. I have given up trying to figure out what is what, and just enjoy them all.

It's just a mess, to be honest.

I feel your pain... I always thought the correct name was Monstera deliciosa Borsigiana albo (or aurea). I have both forms. But someone recently was trying to tell me that there was an albo form that was not Borsigiana.

All mine are the smaller leaved forms, 8-12ish inches and they all look alike. Yes, it's a hot mess. I just want to make sure I get the form I want, whatever it's name is.

Thanks,

Cyndi
