Dear Julius:

	The large, heavily perforated form of Monstera deliciosa I have
seen only in central Chiapas at Uspanapa, growing on limestone outcrops.
As one procedes south the blades are typically smaller and often are not
perforate at all.  I do have a Monstera collected in Honduras that has
consistently small leaves is, I believe, a close relative to Monstera

Dear All,

A question--what is the status of the existence of a true 'minature'
clone of Monstera deliciosa, and what, it it does exist, are the
measurements of a MATURE leaf of this mimature?????
I THINK I remember a discussion on this back when we exchanged ideas
about the non-existence of the 'red-varigated' clone of the same species
which, I believe, turned out to be a photo-shopped/modified picture of
the white-varigated variety of this species.
I THINK I recall someone saying that the common and BIG clone of this
was a selection from the wild, and if one went back to the area where
this plant occured in Coastal Mexico, one would have difficulty in
finding such a large clone, most wild plants of this species were
substantially smaller that the big one we see everywhere in cultivation
Any information would be welcome!

Good Growing!
