Monstera Species velvet shingler (Juvenile Stage)

Winning Bid: $105.00

Item condition: New

SKU: MSVS-1 Categories: , ,


This plant has been the issue of many plant debates and conversations over the years. I got the plant in the 90s from Murline Lyden. Murline was as well known plant collector in FL and was very willing to give me a piece of this odd shingling plant climbing around here greenhouse. After I got some I visited Enid from NSE tropicals and gave her a piece which was placed on the large tree near her growing area. The plant grew and matured and became known as the thing in the tree as a few botanist at the time were having a time IDing the plant. It was later named Monstera dubia. I believe it is a form of Monstera but it is very different than the regular dubia plants we have seen over the years and I have always labeled it velvet shingler due to the odd velvet juvenile foliage. So for now maybe the correct way to name it is Monstera dubia (velvet shingler). I have a blog post for more information on the plant and it’s origins.


The auction plant is shown in the gallery with the white back ground. Grown and well rooted in a 4 1/2 inch pot.
