General Information and Care: Monstera siltepecana is a great larger leaved vine that is quite easy to grow. Many frogs such as Anthonyi and Imitators love the nice large broad surface for egg laying. In the juvenile form it stays smaller at about 4" in length and 1-2" in width. As it matures it can get very large but it takes several years before it will begin to mature, and often times never will in a terrarium. The leaves have a beautiful green coloration with dark green veins as a young plant. When planted, it should be given hardscape items or a background to grow on.
