Monstera is a genus of flowering plants in the Araceae family, A, native to tropical regions of the Americas. Today, there are about 60 known species of Monstera and that number keeps growing. More than a dozen new species have been described just since the start of 2020. This expanded understanding of Monstera is being driven in part by Marco Cedeño and other collaborators—among them researchers at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Monstera are well-known to many houseplant parents. The glossy evergreen leaves and the perforated leaves give off tropical vibes year-round.
