It has been my constant partner for over 10 years. Contrary to its green counterpart, this one is smaller and more suitable for smaller spaces such as apartments.

It’s a robust species that is able to withstand the most prevalent and hated insects, such as aphids and the mealybug that is cottony due to its origins in tropical regions (the forests of Central as well as South America).

Why Monstera Albo Borsigiana Variegata Expensive?

The most costly species in this botanical family monstera albo borsigiana is one of the most easy to maintain and visually attractive.

Monstera Albo Borsigiana Variegata is a genetically altered specimen with white and green variations rather than being consistent green. Exotic specimens that exhibit this kind in genetic variations are highly sought-after by collectors and the market.

There is an intense desire to purchase rare species at all costs. This is the reason why demand for this plant is exploding!

But there is an additional side to variegation that nobody understands or even acknowledges since it’s evidently anti-marketing. It means that leaves may be white and then stop , or a green leaf could emerge and the next ones will be completely white. This is something that can’t be altered or controlled since it is component of every specimen’s genetic evolution.

  • It’s a great air purifier, which makes it a simple to maintain plant and an excellent addition to our homes.

Monstera albo Borsigiana Variegata Care Guide

Our plants are in good condition to be grown for at minimum six months in the containers and substrates the garden stores supply.

But, I suggest that you wait for 15 days prior to moving them to ensure that they don’t get stressed due to the new surroundings (nursery or. the home).

  • Size of the Pot: 18cm plastic pot.
  • Plant height: 45cm (pot not included).


I water when the soil drys out, in accordance with the golden rule that it’s more beneficial to dry it out a bit than overwater.

The leaves will develop brown spots when you overwater. A warm , hygienic shower can help to keep your plant clean.

To avoid the risk of puddles during watering it is best to thoroughly drain the water and then remove it from the remaining water in the plate after the irrigation.


A lot of light that is not direct sunlight is the ideal condition for this plant, however it also thrives in areas that have very low sunlight.


If you reside in a hot or dry area, I suggest the use of a humidifier to boost humidity levels.

For Beautiful Leaf

The light also has an impact in the colour of the leaves. They become more green when there isn’t enough sunlight (such as during winter).

My monstera is located on the east side , and often treats my with “domino” leaves as a (two-colored, with a border that is exactly at between).

I’ve noticed that if you do not change the direction of that of the sun (don’t turn it) the leaves get larger. Additionally, they’ll shrink when the plant is “rotate” the pot on regularly by rotating the plant. In this way it is possible to reduce leaves plates that are your desired size.

Growth Habit

The climber is one, which splits in two from one leaf to the next. The smaller leaves are smooth or with fewer holes, however when they get older, their leaves develop larger and more frequent holes , which are evenly distributed across the leaf.

Being a perennial plant, it is able to grow to enormous dimensions. It can be kept in pots for the duration of its existence, but only changing it when its roots intrude on the whole pot.


Liquid fertilizer that has a low amount of nitrogen is used to keep the plant’s variety.

Mix the fertilizer in more than twice what amount specified on the label, then apply it to the plant using an earlier watering and moist soil to get the most effective results.

Diluted fertilizer may also be sprayed onto the leaves to help in the growth of the leaves.

In winter and the fall I fertilize my garden once a month. In the summer and spring, we suggest fertilizing twice per month.

Propagating Monstera Albo Borsigiana

Each two-three years I re-grow it using cuttings to keep it healthy and lively. The apical type with three or four leaves is the most desirable. The process of rooting is easy The stem is immersed in water, then add activated charcoal.

One node makes it perfect for cuttings and propagation that will be the basis from which shoots and roots can develop. There are just a few cut in the seventh or fifth of these leaves, and they are young, solid leaves.

Monstera Albo Borsigiana VariegataWhy Is My Monstera Crying?

Monstera is also known as”crybaby” or “crybaby” due to the fact that water drops drop from the tips of its leaves following an excessive amount of watering or during the case of cloudy weather.

To be nourished, plants have to take in large quantities of soil water, along with the salts that are dissolved in it.

To eliminate the excess water, leaves of the monstera have special water stomata on the ends of veins, which allow the water to evaporate.

The drops fall along the leaf’s edges until the pointed, curving edges, from where they drop off.

Tips: Make sure to keep the leaves fresh by wiping them clean with a an abacus soaked in water to increase the amount of light they get. spraying aerial roots with water will aid in their growth and help them keep them on the surfaces that you direct them to.
