Monstera adansonii - Swiss Cheese Vine

$ 16.00
Size

Monstera adansonii, also known as the Swiss Cheese Vine, is an easy-to-grow houseplant with show-stopper foliage. Each leaf is full of natural oval-shaped holes called fenestration that earn the plant its nickname. Botanists believe that the holes in its leaves help the plant to stand up to high winds and allow light to pass through to lower parts of the plant in its natural environment. Swiss Cheese Vine loves to climb, and when provided a moss pole, will reward you with larger leaves. Alternately, this vine makes a lovely hanging plant as without support, the vines will cascade down the sides of the pot.

Numerous Monstera species go by the common name ‚ÄúSwiss Cheese Vine,‚ÄĚ and many¬†have been renamed or reclassified in recent years. We select from several varieties, as shown in the product images - feel free to reach out with questions or requests!

Plant Care

‚ÄĘ Light:¬†Place¬†in bright, indirect light
‚Äʬ†Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
‚Äʬ†Considerations: A climbing¬†Monstera adansonii will produce larger, more mature foliage.¬†Misting will help aerial roots adhere to climbing surface

Amazing Plant �

The plant arrived ahead of schedule and was packaged beautifully. It was in pretty good condition when it arrived, but I live in (-20¬į) Northern Maine so the new leaves had some minor frost damage (which I expected). Overall I'm extremely happy with my Monstera Adansonii and will definitely be ordering from Pistils Nursery in the near future.��� https://photos.app.goo.gl/rR2aAsoaQcxnwkKv6
