These fun Monkey Mask plants are flowering aroid plants. In wild Central and South America they'll be found growing deep in the jungles and clinging onto tree trunks galore. You can also find them around the Caribbean Islands. These are great growers and you'll have long vines that you'll be able to 'chop and prop' before you know. They are hungry and like plentiful feeding - it'll be a bit like having a teenage boy in the house but with air-purifying qualities you'll love.

Please note the 32cm option is by special order from the grower.
