Spotted in a local garden ,i see this plant in gardens,since i was a kid
the portuguese name is Adam ribbet
Yeah!popular names are very interesting,but i like more the latin names:-)this oneMonstera Deliciosa,latinMonstra Deliciosa,portuguese,it means (rufly traduce) delicious monster(femenin),it's very similar to portuguese and also funny as popular names are
Must be named like this for the porosity of the leaves
@Thanks Donn for the precision on id@thanks for the information,in portuguese we call it Adam ribbet@thanks Letermagog for the comment,changes made:-)@:-)yes Karen,it's the image i have to,it seems it was"fashion" a few years ago tgo have one of those
I recall a time in the 1980's when nearly every English home seemed to have one of these languishing in a pot in a dark corner somewhere!
Now you can change "unknown" . Good pics!
You are right Donna,it is also known as "split leaf Philadendron."
