What is Monstera marmorata?

Monstera deliciosa ‘Aurea’ (or ‘Marmorata’) is a less common cultivar of variegated Monstera deliciosa borsigiana characterized by yellow or lime variegation on dark green background. Variegation pattern varies from splotchy pattern to ‘full moon’ leaves.

What causes yellow variegation in yellow variegated monstera?

We know that results in the complete absence of chlorophyll or albinism in the affected areas or sectors. What about the yellow variegation in Monstera aurea?Secondly, from studies it is known that variegated plants with green/yellow sectors have less chlorophyll, defective chloroplast biogenesis, and have very high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS).

That is not all. Another notes that “defected chloroplast biogenesis in the yellow sector, reduced chlorophyll content, strong accumulation of carotenoids and high level of ROS.

We can conclude that yellow variegation in aurea comes from defective chloroplast formation, resulting in less chlorophyll. Chloroplasts have chlorophyll and serve as a site for photosynthesis.These yellow sectors also have a high content of reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS helps in cell signaling to ensure a normal biological process, but a high level can cause cell damage.

Another possible explanation for the yellow coloration is the accumulation of carotenoids. Carotenoids are responsible for the yellow, orange or gold colors

How monstera marmorata yellow variegated occurs;

Variegated plants form in different ways, i.e., it may be genetic, natural, pigment, or pattern variegation in calathea lancifolia. Such markings pass through sexual reproduction and are stable.

The others are pathogenic (caused by viral infections), artificial or chemical, reflective or blister, transposon or jumping gene, and chimeral.

What causes variegation in Monstera aurea is a chimera, specifically sectorial chimera. It occurs due to cell mutation on the apical meristem (cell division and growth site).

“Golden Splitleaf Philodendron” The wide shield-shaped over lapping monstera marmorata yellow variegatedleaves with their dramatic splits are richly marbled lemon-lime and gold. Intolerant of even occassional low humidity indoors.

It is very stable variegation. This means that when the plants reach maturity, cuttings can be made, like the Borsigiana, that will maintain the ‘star-like’ speckled variegation.

Why are variegated Monstera so rare?

Why are Variegated Monstera so Expensive? Variegated Monsteras are so expensive because of their rarity and popularity. The lack of chlorophyll in the leaves means it needs more light and grows slower. Slower growth means slower propagation and fewer new plants.
