Gardeners' Notes:

Positive miamimax On Feb 27, 2005, miamimax from Miami, FL wrote:

This is most likely Monstera Borsigiana albo variegata. It will oftentimes exhibit this half green / half white leaf as well as producing entire white leaves, or, mottled & splotched, (the most common seen type of variegated patterning). These are not separate cultivars or sub species as they are somatic mutations and will vary from plant to plant, & leaf to leaf, and are not stable. Genetic variegates will always be the same and will come true from seed. If you sow seed from a somatic variegate, some will come up all green, others will have varying degrees of variegation and others will be entirely white (which will eventually die from lack of chlorophyll-these are called etiolates).
