Re: Philodendron or Monstera?
It is my understanding that the problem started when the Taxonomist got
impatient. They named the juvenile plant. The foliage is not split...
then... the plant grew up....
So, the REAL name is Monstera deliciosa... There is no P. pertusum.
This is the way I understand it...
