Are you sure it's not Monstera deliciosa - Split-leaf philodendron which is more commonly used as a house or office plant. Split-leaf philodendron produces a and incredible flower with delicious fruit which taste like pineapple.

Monstera friedrichsthalii - Swiss Cheese Plant is grown as a house plant also...it's just not as forgiving of dry indoor air as Monstera deliciosa.

I'll have to post a pic of my Monstera deliciosa...it's been in the backyard against the fence - in the same place (and neglected) since the day I moved in almost 7 years ago. : > )

You're welcome! : > )

I have a small cutting-grown plant which a friend gave me last year. It's doing really well. However, the leaves are smaller than this one in the pic.

Yes, I love most plants in the Araceae family! We're so lucky we can grow many outside in our gardens here.
