I own a small Monstera, but I do not know which specific Monstera. It is about 7 stems in a 9 cm pot. There is only one stem that has two leaves with holes.

My guess is that it is either a Monstera adansonii narrow form or a Monstera acuminata.

the full plant, etc. leaves with holes

    Good question and good illustrations; also, italicisation with bold can be conveniently done by typing one underscore immediately after the two initial asterisks and immediately before the text, & then typing one underscore immediately after the text and immediately before the two latter asterisks; We encourage you to take the Tour, and browse through the Help center, to learn more about how the site works!

It does look like a very young plant, which makes it harder to tell exactly, especially with varieties of M. adansonii. It definitely looks like a Monstera adansonii var. laniata or just Monstera laniata for short. However, it could be just the Monstera adansonii var. friedrichsthalii AKA Narrow Form adansonii or Monstera acuminata, just because it is a young M. adansonii, and they all look so similar. I don’t want to say M. laniata is the only possibility. But I’d definitely say it’s likely the Monstera laniata because of the more even textured leaves that also appear to be wider in comparison to the Narrow Form adansonii, and the M. acuminata usually has more holes in the leaves.

    Good detailed answer; If could include characteristics of more of the various types of Monstera indicated could also be helpful; italicisation of text can be conveniently done by typing one underscore immediately before, & one underscore immediately after the text, or, by typing one asterisk immediately before, & one asterisk immediately after the text; We encourage you to take the Tour, and browse through the Help center, to learn more about how the site works!
