Monstera Esqueleto, also known as Monstera Epipremnoides, is the bigger brother of the Monstera Adansonii. It has a more intricate hole pattern with large lobed leaves containing bigger holes than the Adansonii, but less than the even rarer Monstera Obliqua. Its dark green leaves are often glossy and have a unique skeletal pattern of fenestration as they mature, giving the plant its name. They love to climb, and when provided a moss pole, will reward you with larger leaves. Alternately, this vine makes a lovely hanging plant, the vines will cascade down the sides of the pot.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

They are very easy to look after. Ensure the plant has a support to climb on, such as a moss pole, as this will encourage larger leaf growth. Yellowing leaves can be a sign of overwatering, so adjust as necessary.

Care Guide

How to take care of Monstera Esqueleto

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Water more often in the warmer months.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

Introducing the Monstera Esqueleto, a symbol of the fascinating evolution that patience and the right environment can foster.

The Monstera Esqueleto, also known as Monstera Epipremnoides, is a beguiling climbing plant known for its striking fenestrated leaves. These unique, ribbon-like fenestrations unfurl from the petiole, creating a captivating display of nature's ingenuity. Just as these leaves develop over time, they inspire us to be patient with our own personal growth.

This jungle dweller from the rainforests of Central and South America thrives in a humid environment with bright, indirect light. It serves as a reminder that we, too, blossom in the right environment.

When it comes to watering, the Monstera Esqueleto prefers to dry out completely between sessions. This practice reminds us that balance is crucial in all aspects of life, including nurturing our own personal wellbeing.

As your Monstera Esqueleto matures, its vines will reach out, seeking something to climb, much like we strive for growth and progression in life. Providing it a support to climb on encourages the full development of its fenestrations, a metaphor for how support in our lives allows us to fully explore our potential.

Welcome the Monstera Esqueleto into your home. It's not just a plant; it's a symbol of growth, balance, and the mesmerizing outcomes patience can bring. Allow its transformative journey to inspire patience, perseverance, and ambition in your own life.
