Monstera deliciosa ‘Thai Constellation’ is an impressive, easy-to-grow and generally low maintenance plant. This cultivar produces attractive variegated leaves marbled with splashes of creamy-yellow colouring.
The pattern is in small sections scattered across the leaves, reminiscent of stars in a galaxy, hence the cosmic name.
The cultivar ‘Thai Constellation’ can be kept indoors as a distinctive foliage houseplant, although it will require support for optimal growth.
The dramatic and showy foliage is the main reason for growing this cultivar. Its leaves are large, glossy and heart-shaped, and they change structure with age. They develop characteristic splits and holes over time, which is where the common name “Swiss cheese plant” comes from.
Native to tropical rainforests, the species M. deliciosa climbs using aerial roots and is classified as an epiphyte. Monstera deliciosa doesn’t require a water or soil substrate to grow, surviving instead by clinging onto other structures and gleaning nutrition and moisture from the air and its immediate surroundings. They also do fine potted in an airy, well-draining soil mix.
Water when the soil has thoroughly dried out for best results.
