2 The Adaptable Monstera

Photo:  Poppytalk
In July we picked up this Monstera leaf (above) at a local florist (hello The Flower Factory)! We dropped it into some water only expecting it to live a week or so.  Here we are now in October and this leaf is still thriving and isn't giving us any sign it's going anywhere soon.  Needless to say, we're super-impressed! Totally worth the extra bit we paid for it and makes us even more a fan.  The Monstera, popular these past couple of years, is one of those plants that seems so adaptable, doesn't it? Whether it's in a modern space or bridal setting, the plant's large leaf adds a graphical punch and updates a space instantly. Now thinking of getting a full version, we set off for some inspiration.
