Seven Months in the Making

It has taken seven months, but finally my Monstera deliciosa has a leaf!
It lost all its previous leaves after a frosty night late last May. For a long time it sat there apparently doing nothing, but recently it sent up a couple of new shoots, and now a leaf! This poor plant has had a hard life, as I originally rescued it from a skip over 7 years ago. I've learnt not to leave it outside in winter here, anyway.
