Monstera deliciosa - Swiss Cheese Plant

$ 12.00
Size

Monstera deliciosa has one of the most distinctive and enduringly popular leaves in the houseplant world. A darling of interior designers and the urban jungle movement alike, one need only check out #MonsteraMonday on Instagram to understand the massive appeal of this tropical plant. Nicknamed "Swiss Cheese Plant" for the splits and holes that characterize its leaves, this dense vine can grow to immense proportions, with leaves becoming ever more perforated as the plant matures. While it's not known exactly why the leaves develop their holes (called fenestrations), the leading theory is that by producing splits, the leaves have greater surface area and thus capture more light as they climb up trees in the understories of their native Central American jungles. 

PLANT CARE

Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Giving your Monstera deliciosa a moss pole or trellis to climb will encourage the plant to produce larger leaves with splits

WHAT TO EXPECT

You'll get a healthy Monstera deliciosa that meets our rigorous quality standards in your choice of a 4" or 6" nursery pot – Marbled Clay Cachepot sold separately. Your plant may not yet have holes in the leaves, but should develop splits soon! No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Monstera

I thought I was getting a Monstera Adansonii instead but I got a heathy growing Monstera delicious. It is very small as expected but it is doing well.
