The IT plant of 2020
Variegated plants like this monstera are very popular and always harder to find.
Don’t look for this in local nurseries and plant shops. We understand there is a two-year waiting list at Angle Acres, one of the few local nurseries that’s been known to carry variegated forms of monstera, which can be found in plain old green at Lockwood’s, Urban Roots, and other local shops. Monstera deliciosa ‘Thai Constellation’ was chosen as Favorite New Foliage Plant at the recent 2020 Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition (TPIE) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It’s nearly impossible to find online and off—and once you do, the prices are well into the three-figure range. Best to wait until it’s not so trendy.
