The "Monstera Deliciosa" also known as the "Swiss Cheese plant" is a tropical specimen that has aerial roots shooting downwards from the stem. These roots can hang, giving this plant a vine-like propensity.
The Swiss cheese plant gets its name from its big, heart-shaped leaves, which as it ages, grows with holes like Swiss cheese.
- It likes full sun, however, it will adjust to a little shade.
- It wants moist soil and thrives best in warm conditions, requiring high humidity.
- It can be grown as a container plant inside and performs well when trailed on poles or trellises.
- Allow soil to dry out somewhat between waterings.
Care Level Rating: Easy
