Swiss Cheese Plant£28
My large fenestrated (perforated) leaves will bring the jungle feeling inside. I'm a classic, not too hard to look after and will make a statement in your home!
The Stem Pledge
To see me at my best
High humidity and bright light will help my glossy perforated leaves to shine.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.
How to look after me
I like bright rooms but keep me out of direct afternoon sunshine.
Water me when the top few inches of my soil has dried out a little.
Feed me once a month in spring and summer.
Mist my leaves occasionally, and to grow I need the temperature to be above 18°C.
Wipe my leaves every few weeks to remove dust.
Things to look out for
Non-perforated leavesNew leaves will not always be perforated, if older leaves are not perforated make sure your Monstera has enough light, humidity and it is warm enough.
Yellow leavesA potential sign of overwatering, reduce watering and check for root rot.
Leaf edges turning brownThis may be due to low humidity, increase humidity and move away from any heat sources (e.g. radiators).
ToxicityAll parts are toxic - keep away from pets and children.
Air-purificationMonstera's can boost the humidity in your room.
