The leaves of Monstera Epipremnoides 'Esqueleto' are its most distinctive feature. They are large, deeply lobed, and have multiple fenestrations (holes), giving them a skeletal appearance, hence the name "Esqueleto," which means skeleton in Spanish. The leaves can reach impressive sizes and have a glossy, green texture.

This plant is a climber and uses aerial roots to anchor itself to supports like trees or trellises.

Monstera 'Esqueleto' prefers bright, indirect light but can also tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, as this can burn the leaves.

The soil should be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top layer of soil to dry out slightly between waterings.

This plant thrives in high humidity environments. Regular misting or the use of a humidifier can help maintain the preferred humidity levels.

A well-draining, airy soil mix is essential. A mix designed for aroids, often containing components like orchid bark, perlite, and peat moss, works well.

Ideal temperatures are between 18-27°C. It is not frost-tolerant and should be kept indoors or in a greenhouse in colder climates.
