High Variegation

Variegation is a result of natural genetic mutation, a Chimera, affecting chlorophyll production, stoping some of the cells from naturally producing chlorophyll, which is what makes creates variegation.

Every leaf of a variegated Monstera will unfurl with a new varied and delightful pattern

Variegated can vary extensively from marbeling, dramatic sectional variegation or even the coveted ‘half-block’ variegation!

Genetic Mutation

Variegation is unique to the plant, from speckles, marbling to completely white leaves.

Because variegation in Monsteras is due to a genetic mutation, it is also a relatively unstable trait, and the Monstera can often revert with stem cuttings.

Only the most highly variegated stem cutting are propagated to ensure genetic mutation is maintained
