*Terracotta pot in photo sold separately.

Meet Marlowe! Who ever loved that loved not at first sight? This Monstera has an Elizabethan fascination with distant and exotic worlds. Waxing poetic whenever possible, Marlowe seems inherently driven towards the discovery of truth and bright windowsills. Though smaller and more delicate (a bit wrinkly even), than his cousin M. adansonii, Marlowe will astound you with his dizzying philosophical speculations. A rare find, indeed.

We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.
