Dear Jason,


I have been hearing from other Monstera growers that they have this problem with certain species.  

Monstera lechleriana is easy to root as a juvenile, but the mature stems can be temperamental.  Some species are just stubborn...or it may be a timing thing...who knows?

Surf on to Tropicos type in Monstera and look at the species list.  Then search the image file with only the genus...some very attractive species.
