Monstera obliqua is a species complex of plants in the genus Monstera native to Central and South America, in the Obliqua complex, there are tens of subspecies which have yet to be properly identified. The most well known form of obliqua is the one from Peru, often described as being "more holes than leaf" but there are species in the obliqua complex with little to no fnenestration such as the Bolivian type. An epiphytic climber like several other Monstera species, obliqua is particularly known for its foliage, which is often highly fenestrated, to the point where there is more empty space than leaf. Quite expensive in cultivation, this species is often confused for other Monstera like Monstera adansonii.
