Description How to Grow Delivery
A relative of the popular Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera deliciosa), this rare Monstera species looks very different but is a beautiful houseplant which deserves to be more widely grown. Sometimes referred to as the Shingle Plant, Monstera dubia is a climbing vine with heart-shaped leaves which display handsome silver patterning. In the wild the leaves cling like shingles to host tree trunks. This specimen has been mounted on a wooden plank to showcase this curious growing habit. Maximum height: 150cm (5ft).

Height Up to 150cm (5ft)

1 x 14cm potted monstera plant (KC8514)

Place your Monstera dubia in a bright spot with plenty of natural light but not in direct sunlight. Avoid draughts and heat sources and keep temperatures above 15C. Water once the top couple of inches of the compost dries out, allowing excess to drain out the bottom, and feed during the growing season with a Monstera feed. This rainforest plant will also enjoy being misted. When the plant outgrows its pot, pot on using a loose, free-draining mix that is rich in organic matter, such as an aroid mix or an equal mix of orchid bark, coir or peat moss and perlite.
