Other Monsteras

Variegated Monsteras are highly sought-after plants known for their unique and striking variegation, which means the leaves have patches or streaks of different colors. There are several types of variegation found in Monstera plants, and each type can significantly affect the plant's appearance and value. Here are the most common types of variegated Monstera:

Monstera Deliciosa 'Albo-Variegata':

  • This is one of the most popular and well-known types of variegated Monstera. The 'Albo-Variegata' has white or cream variegation against a dark green background. The variegation can appear in different patterns, from large sections to speckles. This variegation is unstable, meaning the amount of variegation can vary greatly from leaf to leaf and plant to plant.

Monstera Deliciosa 'Aurea-Variegata' or 'Marmorata':

  • Also known as the Golden Monstera, this variety has yellow or light green variegation. Like the 'Albo-Variegata', the 'Aurea-Variegata' displays a random variegation pattern that can change with each new leaf. The yellow variegation is also unstable and can vary widely.

Monstera Deliciosa 'Thai Constellation':

  • The 'Thai Constellation' is a cultivar that was laboratory-engineered in Thailand. It features a more stable form of variegation compared to the 'Albo-Variegata' and 'Aurea-Variegata'. The variegation appears as creamy-white splashes and dots over the green leaves, resembling a starry sky, hence the name "Constellation". This type of Monstera is less prone to reverting to all-green leaves.

Monstera Deliciosa 'White Monster':

The "Monstera White Monster," often referred to in the context of variegated Monstera plants, is a variant of the Monstera species that exhibits a specific type of variegation known for its striking white or light-colored patterns on the leaves.
