The Swiss Cheese Plant is a tropical climber named appropriately for the holes in its leaves. Also named appropriately in Latin as you guessed it, ‘The Delicious Monster’.

The Monstera Deliciosa is a true Swiss-Cheese plant. The houseplant brightens up any room. In a big pot, it grows to become a lovely full bush. As a bonus, the plant also purifies the air. This plant requires high humidity levels. Always keep the soil moist, without letting the plant stand in water. The Monstera is truly an autumn plant, so don’t put it in the sun. A place that’s a bit darker is fine too.

This plant will thrive in almost any environment, but if you want to give it a special treat then gently mist it once a week to stop the leaf edges from drying out. This is best to do in the morning so the water has plenty of time to evaporate before evening.

Please note: this plant comes in a plastic nursery pot. Browse our entire range of plant pots to add that extra charm and character to your home.

How To Care For Swiss Cheese Plant

Avoid root rot at all costs. Only water your Swiss Cheese plant lightly and allow to dry between hydrating again.

Keep in a semi-shaded spot for optimum growth. You don’t want your swiss cheese plant to melt in direct sunlight 😆

Treat your swiss cheese to a spray with a water mister every now and again, but don’t go overboard.

Swiss cheese plants grow best in a peat-based potting soil to trap in moisture without it to become waterlogged.

Fertilize your Swiss Cheese Plant monthly to keep it in good condition -it’s best to use an all-purpose liquid fertilizer that has been diluted by half.

Keep an eye out for signs of common diseases on your plant e.g. root rot, rust and powdery mildew. Like many houseplants, you may have to use a intesticide or neem oil to deter common pests.

To ensure your Swiss Cheese Plant grows well, it will usually need repotting every other year and the soil should be refreshed annually.
