Amydrium medium


Amydrium medium is one of those under appreciated plants that most people have no idea exist. It is in the Aroid family and is in the group known as Monsteroids. These Monsteroids are some of the most unusual foliage plant on the planet. Many new collectors know the Monstera species fairly well but the odd relatives are unknown to may people.

Although very similar to Monstera plants, Amydriums are native to tropical Asia (Old World Tropical) while all Monstera plants are native to South America (New World Tropical). Amydrium medium has large cordate (heart-shaped) foliage with fenestration’s (holes) and lobed (cuts). One of the main features to look for when identifying Amydrium medium is the venation on the lea, which gives it an almost reptilian skin look.

These plants are climbers and would love a moss pole or trellis. Allow to approach dry between waterings and give her bright gentle light.
