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.

Burle Marx is an easy to grow, prehistoric looking, low growing variety of Philodendron well suited for interiorscapes, containers and tropical landscape mass plantings. The jungle green, elliptical leaves are thick and leather-like and arranged in a upright formation. Burle Marx makes a wonderful border or ground cover plant. An Incredibly Easy Growing Ground Cover!

Can be grown indoors or out, and will be a lush and resilient addition to your garden. This plant has shiny, slender, bright green, heart-shaped leaves and reddish stems. Used as a ground cover, it will grow in a clump about 2 feet tall. If planted against a tree, it will climb vertically up the trunk.

Native to the tropical jungles of Brazil, this philodendron is named for the eminent Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx who championed the use of native plants in modern landscape design.

Tree Philodendron. Large semiwoody shrub FROM Brazil with enormous glossy leaves, and a single erect unbranched stem that tends to fall over and sprawl when the plant gets large. The robust stem bears stout aerial rootlets between conspicuous leaf scars. The leaves are up to 3' long, deeply dissected into many wavy-margined lobes, and held on long petioles. Older and larger plants develop leaves that are more deeply dissected and more ruffled. The inflorescence consists of a foot-long purplish red spathe enclosing an upright spadix with many tiny petalless flowers. In Nature, tree philodendron can get as large as 15' tall and 15' wide with a stem 6" or more in diameter. It is a popular houseplant if you have enough room, and is great for office interior design, etc.
