Commonly called the Swiss Cheese Plant for its distinctive hole-y leaves, large and well grown Monstera plants are very hard to come by. Extremely photogenic, this trending plant is very easy to care for. The best part? It thrives indoors and adds incredible personality to your home.
This is a full-grown Monstera deliciosa, over 4 feet in height and 3 feet wide.
We recommend adding on a beautiful ceramic pot to display this Monstera in all its glory.
Gentle sunlight is fine for Monstera, but harsh sun needs to be avoided as it will scorch and possibly yellow the leaves.
On the other side of things, dark gloomy corners need to be avoided too in order to prevent loss of the Swiss Cheese Effect and the annoying spreading effect that occurs in these conditions.
When in active growth the compost must be kept moist at all times. That's moist, not dry or soggy. The plant dislikes dryness at the roots, but too much water will cause the roots to rot. Unlike conventional houseplant watering wisdom, we've found the best approach is to water little but often.
