Lovely Monstera leaf and pink to brighten your space in the studio ☘️
The botanical name Monstera Deliciosa is literally named “monstrous” for the size of its leaf and “delicious” for its edible fruit, which tastes like fruit salad. Funnily, nicknames for this plant include Fruit salad tree and Swiss cheese plant. Here we just call it Dee.
The fruit takes a very long time to ripen (as long as a whole year), though when ripe the flavour can be described as a delightful cross between a banana and pinapple. But beware: unripe fruit can irritate the throat and the latex of the leaves and vines can cause rashes because both contain potassium oxalate.
In recent years, Dee has gained popularity as an indoor plant due to its large dramatic leaves and low maintenance. Do you have Dee inside your house? Or is Dee your yoga mat? ☘️
