Growing a Variegated Monstera (Monstera deliciosa var. borsigiana 'Albo Variegata') from a cutting can be a rewarding experience, but it does require some patience and care. Here's how you can propagate a Variegated Monstera from a cutting:

  1. Find a healthy stem: Select a stem with at least one leaf node, which is the point where the leaf attaches to the stem. Choose a stem with a few leaves and healthy growth.

  2. Cut the stem: Use a clean, sharp knife or scissors to make a clean cut below the leaf node. Make sure the stem is at least 6-8 inches long.

  3. Remove the lower leaves: Carefully remove the lower leaves from the stem, leaving only the top 2-3 leaves. This will allow the cutting to focus its energy on producing new roots.

  4. Plant the cutting: Plant the cutting in a small pot with well-draining soil. You can use a mix of perlite and peat moss, or a commercial potting mix. Firmly press the soil around the stem to ensure good contact with the soil.

  5. Water the cutting: Water the cutting thoroughly, making sure the soil is moist but not waterlogged. Avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot.

  6. Provide warmth and humidity: The cutting needs warmth and humidity to grow new roots. You can cover the pot with a plastic bag or place it in a clear container to create a mini greenhouse. Place the cutting in a warm, bright area, but avoid direct sunlight.

  7. Wait for roots to grow: Be patient and allow the cutting to grow new roots. This can take several weeks or even a few months. Keep the soil moist and provide humidity as needed.

  8. Transplant the cutting: Once the cutting has grown a good root system, you can transplant it into a larger pot with well-draining soil. Make sure the pot has drainage holes to allow excess water to escape. Water the plant regularly and fertilize it every 2-3 weeks during the growing season.

With proper care and patience, your Variegated Monstera cutting will grow into a beautiful, full-grown plant.
