Monstera adansonii - Swiss Cheese Vine

$ 16.00
Size

We select from several varieties of Monstera 'Swiss Cheese Vine' - see below for more information on variety selection.

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 stake or trellis, 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.

Swiss Cheese Vine makes a perfect houseplant for both beginners and experts, since it's easy to care for and exotic in appearance. Place it where the plant will receive medium-bright indirect, shield from direct sun and water regularly. Mist regularly to promote climbing.

Ships in a plastic nursery pot and includes detailed care instructions. Marbled Clay Cachepot sold separately.

Variation and Species Information

Numerous Monstera species go by the common name “Swiss Cheese Vine,” and many have been renamed or reclassified in recent years. While current consensus lists Monstera adansonii as the species identification of Swiss Cheese Vine, we've also seen this plant labeled Monstera obliqua, Monstera pittieri, Monstera friedrichsthalii and Monstera expilata. No two batches look exactly alike!

While a fair amount of variation exists from plant to plant, your specimen will have the classic fenestrated leaves. Check out the product photos for examples of leaf variety. If you have a preference on which variety you receive, please reach out to us directly and we can give you more information on what's available!

Looks great

I'm very impressed with the plants I ordered from Pistils. They were packaged nicely and arrived in perfect condition. So far, they are all doing really well. I will definitely order from Pistils in the future!

Adorable!!!

I LOVE my Swiss Cheese Vine!! It looked a little bit sad after the travel, but perked right up after a watering and some time in the sun!
