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 “Swiss Cheese Vine,” 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

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

Perfection

The quality of my Swiss cheese plant was absolutely perfect. The leaves are silky, bright, and not a single unhealthy leaf on it. Love it!

Thrilled

The Monatera arrived in good shape and green. I read the instruction and now I’m waiting the 14 days before I repot. This is the first order for me and I’m pleased.

Beautiful plant!

Bought a monstera adansonii on a whim when the monstera deliciosa was back in stock — it was so much bigger than I expected! Beautiful dark green leaves, looking very healthy. Everything I’ve purchased from Pistils has been lovely, but unwrapping the adansonii was really special.
