Split Leaf Phil (botanically known as Monstera deliciosa). Native to the rainforests of Central America, the big, bold Monstera deliciosa plant is also known as the "split-leaf" philodendron. A favorite of many indoor plant enthusiasts because of its ease of care and its broad, bright green leaves. Although the foliage “holes” originally evolved as a way to help the plant withstand the windy and rainy climates of its native Central American rainforests, they give this plant a distinctive personality all its own. This bold personality is complimented by our 'Austin' container. Includes plant information, care and grow tips. Gift quality packaging!
