I don’t know about you, but I LOVE variegated plants.
And variegated monsteras are some of my favorite variegated plants of all time. They’re absolutely stunning!
However, they can be challenging to care for and tricky to find. They’re also pricey!
For the confident houseplant owner in search of a challenge, however, a variegated monstera can be the star of your indoor plant collection.
Since these plants require more care than the average houseplant, you won’t see them in many chain stores like Home Depot or Lowes, and they’re also rare in local nurseries. The best place to find these plants is online from individual growers, since they’re actually not difficult to propagate.
Here are some of the best ways to get your hands on a variegated monstera.
Where to Find a Variegated Monstera
Prices, plant sizes, and overall results may vary with this platform, but you can almost always find at least a few variegated monsteras for sale on Ebay.
Make sure to check the seller’s rating and history with Ebay and familiarize yourself with their shipping methods, shipping speed, and return policy if they have one. These plants are pricey and delicate, so it’s worth choosing a seller carefully.
To find listings, simply search “variegated monstera” and you’ll end up with several choices of plants at different ages and with unique patterns, and at different price points.
It’s worth a shot!
Many home growers propagate their variegated monsteras and sell the young plants on this platform for vintage and handmade (or homegrown) items.
A simple search for “variegated monstera” yields several results for a number of different varieties. While the number of results may vary from day to day, this is still a great place to find what you’re looking for.
Make sure to read the reviews for that seller before buying anything, and stick to shops with a high rating and plenty of good reviews. While it might be okay to take a chance on a newer seller, an established seller with lots of praise is a safe bet. It’s also a good idea to check on their return policy in case your plant shows up damaged.
Keep in mind that sellers live all over the world and shipping prices/speed vary dramatically. Check the price and speed carefully and message the seller if you have any questions.
