ID HELP philodendron hybrid or species???

ericapayneDecember 30, 2012

I picked this up at Kroger today, haven't a clue which type of philodendron it is as I've never seen one like it before.

Can someone ID it?

I believe that's Monstera obliqua. Very pretty!

I know it as Monstera adansonii.
I assumed that either M. adansonii was synonym for M. obliqua or the other way around. But according to GRIM and TROPICOS they are separate species...
Google just further confused me.
Now I wonder which one I have!

I would say Monstera adansonii. Not a philodendron at all.

Keep it climbing something or it will likely produce long leafless stems with a few leaves on the ends. Moist soil, never let it dry out but don't keep it muddy or bad things can happen, use a fast draining mix when you get around to repotting it.
