Common name: Philodendron 'Cobra.' This is a misnomer, as it is sometimes mislabeled as a philodendron.

Hardiness Zone and Temperatures:
USDA 9a to 11b. Ideally it will be in temperatures between 65-75 degrees F.

Ideal Lighting: 
Bright ambient light; too much direct sun will burn the leaves. Too low and the leaves become smaller and more leggy.

Growing Location:
Outdoor in USDA zones 9a to 11b. This plant seems to do best indoors where you can control the environment better.

Mature Size: 
Indoors, it can vine up to five feet. When given something to climb, the plant can grow up to 20 feet tall but is unlikely to do so in your home!

How to Propagate:
Standard aroid propagation: snip off a piece of the plant that contains a node. You can then plant it directly in houseplant potting mix, or in water.

Special Facts:
There are three natural variations of M. standleyana: 'Albo Variegata' (the form we have), 'Yellow,' and 'White.' 'Yellow' and 'White' have stronger variegation than 'Albo Variegata,' but you can encourage more variegation with stronger lighting! Unlike most monstera, M. standleyana doesn't form fenestrations.

Care Instructions:
Keep the soil moist, but never wet or soggy. Give the plant supplemental humidity for best results. I like using a humidifier, but a pebble tray will work just as well!

Arrangement Tips: 
This bomb ass plant doesn't need an arrangement, it needs a pole to climb!
