Swiss Cheese Plants or Monstera deliciosa are lush green vine plants that will bring a tropical vibe in to your home. They soared to popularity in the 1970's due to their easy going nature, big splash impact, and beautiful dark green, fenestrated leaves that look almost like cheese. We've also got a version with huge leaves here.

Plant Happiness

To see me at my best

I'm very easy going, and will thrive in a bright room with a little extra humidity, water me once thoroughly once the top half of my soil has dried out.

Plant Care Tips

Plant Care Sun behind cloud

Keep me somewhere in bright indirect light, but I can also acclimatise to full sun or light shade.

White misting

I like a little extra humidity so put me in the shower and spray my leaves every few weeks.

Leaves

Wipe my leaves every couple of weeks to remove dust build-up.

About Swiss Cheese Plant

History

The Swiss Cheese plant is native to Central America. Its botanical name is Monstera deliciosa, ‘deliciosa' referring to its fruits which are similar tasting to passion fruits, and ‘monstera’ due to the huge size the plants and the leaves can grow in the wild. Swiss cheese plants shot to fame in the 1970's and have been one of the most popular indoor plants ever since.

Cultivation

In the wild, Swiss Cheese Plants grow as vines where they grip on to trees, or cover walls and builiding facades. Specimens as large as 20 metres tall by 20 metres wide are not unusual. Monstera grow thick aerial roots which help to support the plant onto its surroundings and absorb nutrients from the air.

Care

Swiss Cheese Plants are generally easy care plants. Water when the top few inches of soil has fully dried out, keep in a bright spot and regularly wipe the leaves to remove any dust. Misting is not essential but they will be extra happy being in a bathroom or kitchen, or will really appreciate a shower once in a while.
