Monstera Deliciosa 17cm
Monstera deliciosa, a 1970s favourite, is making a comeback. It’s widely known as the Swiss cheese plant, due to the large holes in its lush, deeply cut leaves. Monstera deliciosa does best in a bright or partly shaded spot, and needs plenty of space as it can get quite large.
The reason its leaves have all those holes is because it’s used to growing in jungle shade. As it grows, it will need support - grow it up a mossy pole and tuck the aerial roots into it. Water the Swiss cheese plant when the top inch or so of compost has become dry and be sure to let the water drain away afterwards. Wipe the leaves occasionally to keep them dust free and shiny. Feed once a month in spring and summer.
Please note that all our plants come in simple plastic pots unless otherwise stated in the product name. If you wish to pot yours up we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
