Monstera lechleriana is a large growing aroid with dark green leaves that are oval to spear shaped when juvenile. The foliage tends to have a reflective sheen in all stages of the plant. As the plant climbs holes will form in the foliage and the more mature leaves will from a fan rosette as it prepares to flower. Flowers are large 1 foot or so tall with yellow spath. The mature foliage can be over 2 to 3 feet long and 1 foot wide with large window openings near the mid veins. Monstera lechlariana seems to grow over most of parts of South America but in my experience it is not common among collections in the US. Plants can run when young but once mature tend to slow down and climb upwards.

Plants are well rooted in 4 1/2 inch pots.
