Default Monstera

Does anyone on here grow monstera plants? Do they fruit for you? Growing outdoors or indoors? Do you have any growing tips?

Just curious, thanks!

I have seen this plant in south Florida.
Pelican Mans Bird Sanctuary to those who remember it.....now closed.
The enclosures were covered with it as a shade plant.

The plant is massive and incredibly invasive......large leafed and thick stemmed.
Beautiful plant....stays small in northern zones.
Sold as a novelty in big box stores.

About ten years ago, I was in homestead Florida and was at a roadside stand called Robert is here. I saw the monstera fruit for sale and bought one (after consulting google on my phone). I ate it slowly when it turned ripe and it was awesome! I'm surprised stores don't carry them for sale.

I've seen the small plants for sale even at grocery stores but don't need another inside plant. My bananas take up too much window real estate in winter! haha

I've just recently started growing them and my plants aren't mature enough to flower yet. I'm only growing the variegated monstera and it's been really interesting so far. I got my plants from a collector in Cincinnati and they always have fruit on their plants. They sent me a photo a couple days ago of a huge grouping of fruit. Their plants also have huge leaves and the last photo I saw had 43" leaves. Once the plant reaches maturity it will fruit regularly.

If you keep them in a small pot and don't water them much they will stay small but probably won't fruit.

If you have space and a large pot these plants will fruit and probably be the easiest tropical plant you've ever grown.

These plants are considered mildly invasive in the tropics and mine have grown about and inch and a half per month so if you have limited mobility that might be a problem.

The leaves on my plant are in the mid 40" range, the stem is less than 18" in length and thicker than a one liter soda bottle.

Congrats on the Manini

It would have been terrible to kill a $20 variegated banana.

If someone likes plants with huge leaves then this is a great plant to grow.

This is a young leaf that recently unfurled, it's 44" but will grow a little larger before it hardens and lifts up.

If anyone wants cuttings or would like to distribute variegated monstera send a PM in late Winter and I'll have details set.
