Monstera ‘Albo’ is expensive because the coloration is caused by a natural mutation that is not genetically passed down through seeds reliably. Even cuttings do not have a 100% success rate to recreate the same variegation. Also, this plant has a slow growth rate, high demand, and limited supply.

Why Are They So Hard To Find?

Many plants with white variegation tend to be more delicate than their green counterparts, and the variegated is no exception. They produce less chlorophyll, and as such photosynthesize a great deal less. Growing them is not only slow but also requires a certain level of skill. Combine this with incredibly high demand, and you’ve got a rare plant that is going to be tough to find, and if you do find it, it will cost you

What is Variegation?

The term variegation refers to the appearance of differently colored zones in the leaves and stems of plants. Variegation occurs due to a lack of chlorophyll in some of the plant’s cells, which most commonly occurs as a result of cell mutation. Some fungal diseases can also result in leaves looking variegated. Foliage variegation can be two-toned, tri-colored, or even quadricolored, and occur in a variety of patterns such as splotches, stripes, dots, blocks, and more.

Types of Variegated Monsteras

Five main types of variegated monstera deliciosas are available including the true variegated monsteras – or Monstera deliciosa ‘variegata’.

All five species benefit from bright, indirect light, well-drained and moderately moist soil, and high humidity to ensure they thrive.

Monstera deliciosa ‘Thai Constellation’

Monstera deliciosa ‘Thai Constellation’ is likely the most popular and widely available type of variegated monstera in the United States. ‘Thai Constellation’ monsteras have splotchy galaxy-like variegation patterns in shades of creamy white and light yellow. Most, if not all, of the leaves will have some type of variegation on them. This is a distinguishing characteristic as most other variegated monstera varieties display both variegated and non-variegated leaves  In all parts of the country ‘Thai Constellation” can be grown indoors as a houseplant. It tolerates low light but grows faster in a bright location.

Monstera deliciosa ‘Albo Borsigiana’

A close runner up to the ‘Thai Constellation’ monstera in terms of popularity is the Monstera deliciosa ‘Albo Borsigiana’, or albo monstera. This stunning plant is defined by brilliant pure white variegation and a blocky and splotchy variegation pattern. This sets it apart from the speckled ‘Thai Constellation’ monsteras, and it is common to see pure white leaves develop on a mature albo monstera. The albo monstera is also known for being a smaller-leaved monstera variety which makes it more compact at maturity.

Monstera deliciosa ‘Aurea’ (or ‘Marmorata’)

A less commonly-found cultivar of variegated monstera is the Monstera deliciosa‘Aurea’, also referred to as the Monstera Borsigiana Aurea, or simply Monstera Aurea. In contrast to the ‘Thai Constellation’ and albo monstera, the aurea is characterized by yellow variegation that occurs in a splotchy pattern. Similar to the albo monstera, the leaves of a monstera aurea are more compact and rarely grow to be more than two feet in diameter at full maturity. Monstera aurea typically has less variegation on the leaves than other variegated monstera varieties and some leaves can develop without any variegation at all.

Mint Monstera

The ‘mint monstera’ is the newest variegated monstera on the scene, and if you are hoping to add this one to your collection it will be difficult to find. Mint monsteras are characterized by minty green or white-green variegation with a marbled variegation pattern. Not much is widely known about this particular however, the mint green variegation is not always consistent across the whole plant – with bright white variegation often occurring throughout the leaves as well.

Monstera deliciosa ‘Variegata’

This type of variegated monstera is considered to be a “true” variegated monstera, and the variegation occurs naturally due to genetic mutation after germination. This type of variegation is not stable and can occur in a variety of colors and patterns. True variegated monsteras are not common and are not typically sold commercially because the variegation is a chance genetic mutation, and therefore is not predictable.
