Monstera Siltepecana

 

 

Monstera siltepecana is a tropical climbing vine that is native to the rainforests of Mexico and Central America. It is a member of the Araceae family, which also includes well-known plants such as the Swiss cheese plant (Monstera deliciosa) and the Philodendron.

The leaves of M. siltepecana are similar to those of M. deliciosa, but they are smaller and more delicate in appearance. The leaves have characteristic fenestrations, or holes, that give the plant its common name of "Siltepecana." The holes are not present on all leaves and may not appear until the plant is mature.

M. siltepecana is an epiphytic plant, which means that it grows on other plants, typically in the crotches of branches, but not parasitic. It can be grown as a houseplant, but it prefers a warm, humid environment with bright indirect light. It is also a climbing vine, it may require a support structure such as a trellis or a moss pole to grow on.

It is a relatively fast grower and can be propagated by taking stem cuttings and rooting them in water or moist soil.

It is considered a rare plant and can be difficult to find for purchase. It is often confused with Monstera deliciosa, which is more commonly available.
