Each other nontoken creature you control has"Pay this creature's mana cost: Monstrosity X", where X is Rita's power. Layers are not your friend. Including what Alfonso and Criminal said, this will always give your creatures Monstrosity 2, regardless of what Rita's power is.
This ability is a Layer 6 effect, since it grants an ability to a creature, but Rita's power is not calculated until layer 7, so the effect will always use the default printed power of 2. Now, there is a rather neat workaround you can do. Monstrosity is a keyword action, so it can be applied in a few ways.
Currently, the rules only handle a creature using it's own Monstrosity ability, but there's nothing stopping the ability from "Monstrous"ing another permanent Choose another creature you control and pay its mana cost: Monstrosity X that creature, where X is Rita Repulsa's power. Mana cost includes color. This allows you to adjust the size of the creature's growth based on Rita's power, and lets you avoid messing with grafting abilities to other creatures and running afoul of the layer system, since the ability will check Rita's power on resolution, instead of constantly.
Strictly speaking, you can't do "Monstrosity X that creature". Monstrosity always applies to "this permanent".
Thanks for all the feedback. I had no clue the complexity of the mechanic was this high.
Monstrosity doesn't have a cost parameter, so you can't say "the monstrosity cost. Found the internet! Magic wand, make my monster grow.
