'Tauerii' is a dwarf variety of Monstera deliciosa, and although not as big, has fairly large leaves with fenestrations (holes in the leaf) that become larger in more mature leaves. The 'Tauerii' is very easy to care for indoor plant and ideal for a beginner. They can tolerate low light, but thrive in bright indirect sunlight. 

Monsteras belong to the aroid family of plants that are native to tropical rainforests. They have distinctive holes or fenestrations on their leaves that make them very attractive feature plants. In their natural habitat, Monsteras grow under the canopy of larger trees by climbing on their trunks. The roots of the Monsteras require a lot of aeration, so an ideal potting mix must take this into account. A good option is an orchid potting mix. Monsteras need a support to grow on and thrive- outside you can let them grow onto a tree or fence, but inside you need to give it a totem for support. The leaves grow larger with more fenestrations when given support. Monsteras also do well in hydroponics - simply cut a leaf with its node and soon you will see roots emerging and the plant will do very well growing in water. Monsteras are a good buy because they are reasonably priced, are easy to take care of, can grow into a  substantial size, and are just stunning!
