How To Care For Swiss Cheese Plant

Avoid root rot at all costs. Only water your Swiss Cheese plant lightly and allow it to dry between hydrating again. You can buy a soil & light tester here, to monitor the moisture levels in your soil more closely.

Keep in a semi-shaded spot for optimum growth. You don’t want your swiss cheese plant to melt in direct sunlight ๐Ÿ˜† It thrives in indirect sunlight, but can sustain itself even in a North facing room, just don’t expect a lot of growth in these conditions.

Your swiss cheese plant will love a spray with a water mister every now and again – especially during winter when humidity levels are drier with the radiators on in the house.

Swiss cheese plants grow best in a loose draining potting soil to trap in moisture without it becoming waterlogged. You can use Miracle-Gro’s Houseplant Potting Mix here.

Fertilise your Swiss Cheese Plant monthly to keep it in good condition – itโ€™s best to use an all-purpose liquid fertilizer that has been diluted by half. Check out our houseplant fertilisers to find the best solution for you.

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 an insecticide or neem oil to deter common pests and wipe the leaves clean regularly to keep bugs at bay.

To ensure your Monstera grows well, it will usually need repotting every other year and the soil should be refreshed annually. Always re-pot in the next size up to give the plant more room to grow into and thrive again.
