Fun Facts: The Monstera is a symbol of a long life and the honoring of elders and other people deserving of respect. Acetate is a nylon plant-based polymer (plastic) that is significantly stronger and much more pliable than traditional plastic. It is more impervious to pressure compared to traditional plastic which prevents it from easily breaking.
