Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Monstera deliciosa is instantly recognisable for its lustrous, dark green, heart-shaped leaves with their characteristic splits. As the leaves grow the holes appear, creating a palm-like effect and giving it the common name of Swiss Cheese Plant. This climbing plant is best trained on to a moss pole. It will produce aerial roots which will take moisture from the atmosphere as it grows. Monstera deliciosa is a majestic house plant that originates from the South American Rainforests. With maturity it will make a fantastic focal point in a bright room as it forms a large, architectural display. Making it ideal for large entrance halls, conservatories and larger living spaces that can accommodate its size as it grows. Height and spread: 2.5m (8').

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

Monstera is an adaptable plant, growing happily in average room temperatures of 18C (65F) - 24C (75F), away from cold draughts and radiators. A brighly lit room, well away from direct sunlight is ideal, however it can cope with less light which will slow its growth. When positioning this plant, do consider its rapid growth rate and ultimate size to ensure that it is given sufficient space to grow.
Water Monstera regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between each watering. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Monstera appreciates a humid atmosphere - stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant. Misting the foliage daily with a fine spray will also help to improve humidity. Monstera can grow to large proportions over just a few years. Where necessary, cut back stems to contain it within the available space. This plant is best trained onto a moss pole to keep it tidy.
