Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa)
This product is sold out
The unique and popular Monstera Deliciosa looks great and is probably one of the easiest houseplants you will ever care for. Some even say they thrive on neglect. So, if your a rubbish plant parent these guys are for you!
Native to the tropical rainforests of southern Mexico down to Panama their big glossy-green, swiss cheese like leaves can turn any room into a jungle.
The characteristic holes in the leaves are believed to be an adaptation to allow light to reach the lower leaves. In the wild, the Monstera Deliciosa would normally be growing up the side of a tree.
We love the look of the Swiss Cheese Plant in The Birdie - Charcoal but she looks great in anything. You you can select other planters from any of Our Classic Range Pots.
Wait until the top 2-3cm centimetres of soil in the pot has dried out before watering heavily. Water less in in the cooler months to replicate the tropical dry season. These guys are pretty tolerant if you miss a watering or two but you will see noticeable increases in growth during the summer months if you remember to water regularly.
Bright indirect light and a humid position is what these guys love. They are pretty tolerant of cooler temperatures but if you get frosts in your area make sure they stay inside over winter.
They will arrive to your door at about 40cm tall but this is a fast growing plant that will continue to produce larger and larger leaves as they mature. They will need repotting approximately every two years.
Greeting your Monstera Deliciosa
We package the Swiss Cheese plants in an approximately 140mm plastic pot within our unique plant packaging system. If you purchase a ceramic pot in the same order we will transport it together in the one delivery.
