With huge glossy dark green leaves, Monstera Deliciosa, also known by its common name “Swiss Cheese Plant”, is a striking eye-catching addition to any room. It’s also a popular houseplant because it’s generally not fussy. It’s gorgeous leaves develop gaps/holes that give it its whimsical name, and they may grow up to three feet wide!

Monstera Deliciosa grows best with indirect sunlight. If direct sunlight is unavoidable, limit the exposure to just two to three hours of the morning sun.
This plant grows best in peat-moss based potting soil, inside a pot that has a large drainage hole. The peat moss helps trap moisture in the soil without allowing it to become waterlogged.
Before you water a Swiss Cheese plant, do the knuckle test—stick your finger up to the knuckle into the soil to see how wet or dry the soil is, if the soil is nearly dry, water it. Don’t let the soil dry out entirely.
Best grown in a conservatory or greenhouse where humidity, temperature, and light are all maximized, ex: choose well-lit, warm and humid bathrooms or kitchens, and additionally mist your plant frequently.
Once you’ve potted or re-potted the plant, don’t fertilize within four to six months if you’re using a general houseplant potting soil. These soils have slow-release fertilizer already mixed in. After this, fertilize when you water during the summer and spring months, then refrain from feeding during the fall and winter seasons.
(Flowering plants only blossom naturally in their respective seasons. Fruit bearing plants only produce fruits naturally during their growing seasons. All plants are sold in generic nursery pots, and may naturally vary in colors/sizes from the exact images illustrated above.)
