If unchecked, it may climb fences and trees. It may also hide a small shed in no time.
The Monstera plant grows in sunny areas as well as in the shade and it need little or no watering although it has a rather massive root system.
It is easy to trim in spite of its size. The "branches" are easily picked up and large enough to be removed by sanitation workers without being bundled up or put in containers.
I transplanted a few Monstera plants digging as any holes, willy-nilly, and put the roots down, covered them up with soil and mulch, Watered. Waited. They did very well.
I am carefully monitoring the giant evergreen plants. I have never seen this plant flowering but when "you see the plant pop out in what looks like a little bunch of green bananas and then loose their shells to reveal an attractive inner core, that is what reproduction looks like on these plants" according to an article in a recent Times Union (Jacksonville, Fl). Yes, maybe I have seen it in different stages and not knowing what was happening.
One thing for sure, these plants are huge for the home landscape, but attractive and green, so it is important to keep in mind that they will grow tall and wide if you should decide to plant one or two.
