I'm Monstera Deliciosa but people have called me the Swiss Cheese plant for years. I'm probably the most famous houseplant ever. You'll see my perforated leaves everywhere. From curtains to art print. My foliage is stunning. I'm really easy to care for too. Perfect for any beginners.
I'm in a 24cm pot and I'm 120cm in height from the base of my pot.
I like average warmth, minimum 10°C in winter please. Put me in a spot that gets moderate brightness water me thoroughly in summer. Make sure my soil dry's out in between watering's.
Direct sunlight. Please don't place me on a sunny window sill. You'll burn my leaves.
LOOKING AFTER ME
Active growth of my new leaves starts at 18°C. Feed me with every other watering in growing season and mist my leaves too. Repot me every 2 years into a pot about 2cm wider to keep me growing. I love supports like moss or bamboo sticks in my soil to help me keep growing up, otherwise I'll grow all over the place.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m toxic so keep me well out of reach.
