Monstera (The Swiss Cheese Plant)

£14.99

One of the most easily recognised indoor plants with an upright habit and large glossy leaves with cuts and holes (hence the Swiss Cheese name). Native to the South American rainforests, it is understood that the leaves have naturally developed these holes and cuts to help the plant’s large leaves avoid damage in tropical storms.
In the home, it is often grown on a moss pole to provide an anchor for the aerial roots (roots that appear above ground) which fix into the pole for stability as the plant grows taller.
This plant doesn’t need a great deal of attention; water when the compost becomes dry, place it in a bright room but preferably not in direct sunlight and mist the leaves if the humidity seems low.
