But wouldnt M. dubia change to an all green color (w/o variegation) if it was in its in-between stage, as in in between juv. and adult? Ive grown "silver queen" up Greenhouse walls and it never seems to change much other than leaves getting a little larger. The pics Ive seen of M. dubia show it change from its shingling stage (with appressed, variegated leaves) to its adult forms fairly quickly with only a few of the "in-between stage" leaves. I can definately see how these can be confused though. Does anyone out there know what the juvenile form of M. siltepecana look like? I have 2 plants both labled M. siltepecana, both are very similar but one form is much lighter in variegation with almost light green markings instead of white. My Monstera dubia has almost rounded variegated leaves that are appressed.
Very interesting conversation, at least for me. Harry is right, some of these Monsteras are hard to get names on, especially since alot of us dont have the room to grow them to mature size.
