The Monstera Mint Adansonii is a rare houseplant, and a subspecies of the Monstera Deliciosa Variegata. Whilst it shares some of the same characteristic as its more common cousin, it has a few surprises that make it a wonderful, unique and striking addition to your houseplant collection. The heart-shaped foliage makes this plant recognisable as a monstera with elongated, rounded fenestrations that add some texture and design to the plant. This uniquely variegated monstera displays an almost marbled mix of green and white that is known as a mint variegation.


Why is the Monstera Mint Adansonii so rare?


Any plant with white variegation is more delicate than a plant without it. This is because the white areas of the leaf produce less chlorophyll and will photosynthesise a lot less than other leaves. Because this plant has a large portion of white areas on the leaf it means that this plant is hard to grow and care for when young. Luckily, our expert plant growers know just how to get the job done and have reared this plant to a place where it ready to be sent to a new home.

Where should I put my Monstera Mint Adansonii?


This monstera need to be placed in a location with consistent bright, but indirect sunlight. Because the leaves have a reduced ability to turn light into energy, you need to ensure that the light is constant, whilst not intense enough to burn the more vulnerable foliage. It would also be a good idea to buy a grow light to support your plant through the winter months when the available light is reduced.


Make sure that your chosen location is protected from cold draughts and areas where temperatures will fluctuate wildly.

How often should I water my Monstera?


Water your monstera once every one to two weeks, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. This replicates the natural rainfall pattern of its native environment.
