Dear Michael,According to Michael Madison's revision of Monstera, Monstera siltepecana has exserted and erect juvenile leaves, it is closer to Monstera adansonii than Monstera dubia. If your plants is shingling then it is not M. siltepecana.With best regards,DavidLe 7 janv. 07 à 19:37, RAYMOMATTLA@cs.com a écrit : 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
