I've been watching this plant grow in my kitchen for many years now...

It just keeps getting bigger....and BIGGER. Now it's climbing the walls!

... in a vase with water

... no windows, no actual day

I just put more water in the vase every 3 months or so and it keeps growing. All the way around the mirror now.

Neat.

22. Yup, it's so easy! I've got several cuttings in the pot that has this one.

I was amazed to see it traveling up the window frame!

20. I've seen them in the tropics with leaves a foot in diameter, growing up trees.

When I was a kid my grandmother had the solid green variety growing around the walls of her living room. It was growing out of a blue bottle shaped like a violin.
I have a Monstera deliciosa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monstera_deliciosa) in my greenhouse, it has taken over half of it. They have a fruit that tastes like pineapple. I planted a cutting at the base of the house on the East side against a cinder block wall. It has made it through several years even though we get frost.

I enjoyed the Wikipedia article too. These plants have amazing variations in the ways they grow.
