If there is one houseplant that has inspired generation after generation of indoor gardeners, then it has to be the ever popular (and easy to grow) Swiss Cheese Plant, Monstera Deliciosa.
With glossy, rich green leaves laves with irregular holes, plants will trail gently over their pot if left untrained or can be treated as a climber and tied to a support.
The glossy, tropical leaves of the Monkey Leaf are what makes this plant a star, easily adding a lush, exotic feel to any room.
It's fascinating to watch the young leaves as the emerge tightly furled, growing longer each day before opening fully. Young leaves are solid, but as the plant matures they begin to develop the characteristic holes. Naturally a lazy climber, your plant will enjoy the support of a moss pole (not supplied) where you can push its aerial roots into the moss as they develop, helping to support it as it grows.
A native of tropical rainforests, Monstera is a houseplant that's easy to keep happy – we recommend that you place it in bright but not direct sunlight indoors and mist the leaves regularly to provide humidity – plus they love a bit of a leaf-wipe now and again to remove dust and restore that glossy sheen.
Supplied as an established plant in a 19cm pot, approx. 75cm tall.
As with all houseplants, keep away from children and pets and take care when handling.
Please note that the decorative pot is not included.
