Monstera obliqua is widespread throughout Central and South America. The nominal form has large, round to elliptical leaves and grows in Central America; the further one gets into the Amazon basin, the more frequently plants with a pronounced slit formation are found. Martius described this species in Flora Brasiliensis as Monstera obliqua var. expilata. This variety forms large, closed curves in the leaves. This distinguishes Monstera obliqua from Monstera epipremnoides, the so-called skeleton plant, which is open at the leaf margins.
