Where does it originate from :
The Monstera Plant or better known as the Swiss Cheese plant is a tropical specimen native to tropical forests of southern Mexico.
Tell me more :
The Monstera is 130 cm in height with aerial roots shooting downwards from the stem. Its roots can hang, giving this plant a vine-like propensity. The plant gets the name 'Swiss cheese' from its big, heart-shaped leaves, which as it ages, grows with holes like Swiss cheese.
How to take care of the Plant :
The Swiss cheese plant likes full sun, however, it will adjust to a little shade. It wants moist soil. This plant thrives best in warm conditions and requires high humidity. The plant can be grown as a container plant inside and performs well when trailed on poles or trellises. Allow the soil to dry out somewhat between waterings.

The "Monstera Deliciosa" is a tropical plant originating from the Tropical Americas and is part of the Araceae family. Its name, as one might guess, comes from the Latin meaning “abnormal” because of its odd-looking, perforated leaves. The “deliciosa” part of its name comes from the pineapple-like fruit it bears in the wild.
The Monstera has many names such as Ceriman; Custard plant; Indian ivy; Fruit salad plant and Mexican breadfruit but is perhaps best known under its nickname “Swiss Cheese Plant”.

The bags are packed.
The emails are set to OOO.
You’ve turned off all electronics (and the immersion!)
….Oh, wait what about the plants?!!
