  Why is Monstera deliciosa to be kept in the adult form in
From: Ferenc Lengyel <feri.lengyel at gmail.com> on 2010.09.02 at 11:13:29(21365)
Dear all,

Does anybody know why M. deliciosa keeps its adult form in "captivity"? All the other Monstera species, Philodendrons and Epipremnums usually stay in the juvenile form in pot culture and need humid tropical conditions and climb on a support to reach the adult form. Even the they can easily revert to the juvenile form if returned to normal house conditions. But not M. deliciosa. Why?
