Best Monstera Adansonii Varieties

2. Monstera Adansonii Archipelago

Another variegated variety comes with more variegation compared to the Variegata type. It has a beautiful color combination of green with white and yellow hues on elongated leaves.

3. Monstera Adansonii Laniata


This is a subspecies of Adansonii, and the leaves can be found in almost the same shape and size with one huge difference. The Laniata leaves are usually glossy green.

4. Monstera Lechleriana Schott


It has much bigger foliage than the Adansonii, which the plant is similar to, and spreads out more to occupy space. Keep it where the plant gets indirect light and good levels of humidity. 

5. Monstera Obliqua


Monstera Obliqua has the largest and most fenestrations on the leaves. With larger holes and thin, ‘string’ pieces that hold the leaves together, it looks fantastic!

6. Monstera Adansonii Friedrichsthalii

This variety is not much different from the classic Adansonii at all. Usually, the older plant with longer and bigger leaves is the Friedrichsthalii. 

7. Monstera Acuminata

This variety is a little uncommon, with fewer holes and the leaf shape that tapers to a narrow point. The foliage has a velvety touch to it.

8. Monstera Epipremnoides


Epipremnoides has much bigger holes in the leaves than common Adansonii. A more significant and lighter green shade sets this variety apart from the rest.
