Monstera deliciosa prefers bright, indirect light but will tolerate moderate shade. Avoid direct sunlight however, as this may scorch the plant.
Water when the soil of your Swiss Cheese Plant has started to dry-out. Excess water will lead to large dry spots developing on the foliage.
Likes warm conditions from 18-27°C. Anything lower than this will reduce the plant’s growth rate. It will tolerate 12°C and above. Avoid cold draughts.
The Swiss Cheese Plant is happy with average to high humidity levels. Cannot cope in dry air situations. Consider misting occasionally for best results.
Feed once a month with a balanced fertiliser during the growing period.
Height & Growth Rate
Use a moss pole to support the plant (the roots will cling to this for support) or cut back if it gets too big. Slow to moderate growth, but depends upon the conditions.
The leaves are poisonous. Keep away from pets and children.
Monstera deliciosa is native to Mexico and Central America.
