The popular Swiss cheese plant, Monstera adansonii, gets its name from its leaves, which as it ages, become covered with holes that resemble Swiss cheese. The rare houseplant is part of the Araceae family that's native to South and Central America, is easy to grow and loves to climb.
Low to bright filtered or indirect light.
Don't let the soil dry out entirely.
Tip: Before you water a Swiss cheese vine, do the “knuckle test“—stick your finger up to the knuckle into the soil to see how wet or dry the soil is. If the soil is nearly dry, water it.
These are deep-jungle plants that thrive on lots of moisture during the rainy season, and high temps. The closer you can mimic the plant's natural conditions the better—select well-lit, warm and humid bathrooms or kitchens or mist plants frequently. You can also place a humidifier near the plant In order to keep the air moist.
This vine can reach up to 30-60 feet with proper support (trellis or stake).
