    The Raven ZZ and Monstera Peru I ordered arrived much sooner than I had anticipated for an international delivery; in fact, the process was smoother than any domestic shipment in my experience. Packaging was extremely optimized, such that not a leaf was damaged. Both plants are of superb quality and generous size, and their maturity far exceeds expectation.

    This shop is really the best. I hope more people are aware of MonsteraCo and Oliver. Oliver does not simply maximize its profits. He makes rare plants available at very very reasonable price and allow more people to enjoy them. Lastly, the plants are always healthy and at least as big as in the pictures.

    My orbifolia was packed so carefully that even the carelessness of the postal service did not damage this beautiful plant! I had it in the same week it was shipped too so the plant didn't look stressed at all. I will definitely be buying more plants from this seller!

Why MonsteraCo?

We started MonsteraCo for the simple reason... We love plants, particularly the weird and wonderful!

Years of collecting rare and unusual plants lead us to the decision to start MonsteraCo plant shop, allowing us to share our passion with other like minded people. We get great satisfaction providing high quality plants to people of all abilities and love to chat about the plants we have available.

One particularly enjoyable aspect is searching for those curiosities that we get special requests for. We have contacts all over the world, and can source many different types of rare or trend led plants. Just let us know what you are after, and we may well get one for our personal collection too!

Lastly, thank you for taking the time to read a little more about MonsteraCo and our personal motivations behind why we do what we do,

Please feel free to contact us if you would like to know more!

Plant Wording

Here are some of the interesting words and their meanings associated with Tropical plants.

Fenestrations - Present in Monstera, fenestrations are the holes that appear in leaves as plants mature. The more mature the plant, the larger the fenestrations

Variegation - A natural mutation in leaves that produces amazing white patterns that have little to no chlorophyl present.

Guttation - When a plant has too much water at its roots, you may see drips forming at its leaves. This is the plant expelling water and is often a sign of over watering.

Nodes - These are points on the stem where leaves, branches and aerial roots form.

Aerial Roots - These are roots the plant uses to grip onto another plant or structure to support itself.
