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.
