Ntwhowthink, Welcome! to All Things Plants!

I agree on the identification of the Monstera obliqua cultivar and the holes in the leaves are normal ... hence the common name of "Swiss Cheese Plant". Green Grin!

How can one tell from the pic it's a cultivar (vs. the plain species?)

I just submitted proposals to have my two pic's at that entry moved from the species to the cultivar 'Leichtlinii' because I'm certain that cultivar was planted by a volunteer in a few different spots in the gardens.
