Dear All,

First off, Thanks to Marek (and others like Raymond M. who responded to the list on my querry!), for sharing this information with all of us, it was (I THINK!) what I was looking for. Tom and Pete, is this TRUE Monstera deliciosa, or something else (please check the link kindly given by Marek in his note, below)? It certainly LOOKS like a true M. deliciosa, with even the SAME fenestrations (holes) and splits in its mature leaves. Tom, does your small Honduran collection have these fenestrations?? What is the largest leaf on this Honduran collection? Thanks again to all of you for sharing your knowledge, it enriches all of us!



This "compact" Monstera deliciosa is named M.d. "Borsigiana" or sometimes M.d. var. borsigiana, but this is rather a cultivar, not a natural variety. The largest leaf I've seen was about 40 cm (1' 4") in diameter.


Don't be deceived by the filename "pertusa", once I thought it was M. pertusa, and I don't change filenames in my website because some other sites have direct links to my pages.

	 	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 minature????? 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 Worldwide.
Any information would be welcome!

Good Growing!
