Variegated Monstera deliciosa var. borsigiana is the variegated small-leaved form of the popular house plant.

Monstera deliciosa var. borsigiana, often referred to as the “fruit salad plant” or “Swiss cheese plant”, is easy to care for, and loves to climb.

The variety borsigiana is a much less common variety, with leaves growing much smaller than the common deliciosa variety. The deliciosa will develop inner fenestrations as well as the outers. Whereas the borsigiana will only develop the outer fenestrations as the leaves remain much smaller. The borsigiana has much longer internodes on the stem so will appear more of a vine. The deliciosa develops a thicker stem and the spacing between nodes/leaves is much shorter.

This batch is grown by a private seller who has chosen to support our mission for good. If you are a private seller please reach out and support us. We charge a similar commission to TradeMe, but all the profits go to a local charity, not an overseas-owned empire.
