Monstera obliqua leaves are as thin as a sheet of paper, when adansonii leaves are a bit rough. Obliquas leaves consist mostly of holes. Adansonii leaves are not as longitindial as obliqua's. The holes in adansonii cover generally half of the adult leaf.

Monstera deliciosa, Philodendron pertusum

Swiss Cheese Plant, Fruit Salad Plant, Ceriman
Family: Araceae
Origin: Mexico and Guatemala
Vine or creeperFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliageEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

A jungle climbing relative of the philodendron from Mexico and Guatemala. It is seen in gardens in tropical and subtropical areas, growing well in partial sun or shade. The plant begins bearing after three years. Popular as a houseplant, it seldom fruits in the home. The large pinnate leaves are perforated with oblong or oval holes, hence one common name. The 9", dull, deep green, cone-like fruit is actually an unripened flower spike, covered with hexagonal scales that dry out and separate as the fruit ripens from the base upwards, revealing the white pulp. It takes a little longer than a year to mature to an edible stage. The fruit tastes kind of like a cross between a sugar apple and a pineapple.Very perfuming smell and taste! It's so amazing, can't figure the consistency, but totally a pineapple sugar apple cross... But wash the black specks off before eating - they will sting your tongue. Unripe fruit, if eaten causes irritation to the mouth and throat because of the oxalic acid. It can be induced to ripen by picking when the base has started to wrinkle and wrapping in a bag for a few days. When unwrapped, the scales should have separated.

Another interesting characteristic of this plant is that the seedlings, upon germination, will grow in the direction of the darkest area (not just merely away from light) until they encounter the base of a tree to grow on. They will then begin to climb toward the light which is generally up into the canopy of the tree upon which it is growing. Propagated by cuttings of mature wood or air layering.

Monstera pinnatipartita

Nido Nodo
Family: Araceae
Origin: Columbia
Large shrub 5-10 ftVine or creeperSemi-shadeRegular water

This species starts out with somewhat light green undivided leaves. It then begins to split as the plant matures growing small splits along the leaf. Eventually, the plant will set up in a nook or a joint in a tree and begin growing as if nesting. This is where the plant becomes most interesting. The leaves become completely divided or pinnate.

Monstera tenuis

Monstera
Family: Araceae
Origin: Costa Rica
Vine or creeperShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

Monstera tenuis is a vine that undergoes a dramatic change in leaf morphology during its development. Its small, round juvenile leaves grow closely pressed against its support tree trunk. As the vine grows vertically, the leaves become larger, but at some point the leaves become very large and dissected and are held away from the host tree trunk on stout petioles. The juvenile leaf morphology is well-suited for diffuse light capture while the adult morphology enhances exposure to direct light. Light availability and a threshold juvenile leaf size have been hypothesized to influence this dramatic morphological change.
