Fenestration

Ever wonder why Monsteras have holes? The technical name for this unique feature is called fenestration or leaf perforations. Researchers don’t have a concrete explanation for the evolutionary purpose of fenestration, but there are a few possibilities.   It could be that fenestration prevents high winds from tearing the leaves, or to help maximize the amount of rain that’s able to reach the plant’s roots, or as a defense mechanism to look less appealing to herbivorous creatures looking for a snack.

Dieffenbachia, also known as Dumb Cane plants, are truly a great lower light option for plant parents. They are extremely adaptable to different lighting conditions and may just need to be rotated as they lean towards the light source in a space. ☀️ ⁣ ⁣Dieffenbachia come in many different color variations ranging from neon green and emerald to deep green with white variegation. Our personal favorite has to be the Dieffenbachia ‘Reflector’ with its vibrant electric green mottled and camo-like spots. ⁣⁣These plants like well-draining soil as they do not like to have wet roots for too long. They also...
