Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A genus of monocotyledonous climbing shrubs of the natural order Araceæ, type of tribe Monsteroideæ and the subtribe Monstereæ, characterized by four ovules in a two-celled ovary. There are 12 species, natives of tropical America. They have large firm two-ranked leaves, often with a row of large elliptical holes. Their flowers are small, without calyx or corolla, crowded upon a spadix, with a boat-shaped spathe, often yellow. The succulent fruit of coherent berries is, in the case of the Mexican M. deliciosa, an article of food. Several species are cultivated under glass for their singular foliage.
