Monstera adansonii, also known as the Swiss Cheese Vine, is an easy-to-grow houseplant with show-stopper foliage. Each leaf is full of natural oval-shaped holes called fenestration that earn the plant its nickname. Botanists believe that the holes in its leaves help the plant to stand up to high winds and allow light to pass through to lower parts of the plant in its natural environment. Swiss Cheese Vine loves to climb, and when provided a moss pole, will reward you with larger leaves. Alternately, this vine makes a lovely hanging plant as without support, the vines will cascade down the sides of the pot.

Care

Light: Your Monstera prefers bright to medium indirect light, but is not suited for intense, direct sun (however it can be acclimated to withstand it).

Watering: Allow soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. 

Humidity: Monstera is comfortable in average room humidity, but will thrive and spread its aroid roots in more humid conditions.

Soil: We suggest potting your adonsonii in a chunky well draining soil mix.  Make your own by combining our orchid mix, perlite, and pumice.

Fertilizer:  Feed your monstera bi weekly in growing season.  We suggest using Plant Vitamins or Kelpy Plant Food which you can find in our shop.
