I have recently learned that this plant, everso popular as cuttings for vases in all the home decor catalogs, is not technically a philodendron:
It’s monstera deliciosa, aka split leaf philodendron, aka swiss cheese plant. It is native to the rainforests of Central America. In nature, it can grow up to 40 feet tall and produces an exotic fruit known as Mexican breadfruit, which tastes a bit like pineapple and banana. It’s poisonous until ripe. Delicious.
