Monstera: Plantmom

There are never enough words to describe monstera deliciosa. From its waxy leaves to its fierce size, no wonder it’s such a crowd pleaser. 

The monstera changes as it matures. Starting from a small heart-shaped leaf, it develops fenestrations and holes. 

I believe that the anatomy of a monstera can mimic a perfect world. They’re hemi-epiphytes and have developed a way to climb and grow on to trees. As the plant matures and climbs higher to receive more light, its fenestrations get deeper to allow light to shine down on its young.

While this is not unique to the monstera, plants can teach us a unique way to live and find purpose, as well as sustain life for generations to come.
