Monstera Deliciosa Swiss cheese plant split-leaf philodendron

Monstera Deliciosa

The Monstera deliciosa, also known as the Swiss cheese plant, is a popular indoor plant cherished for its striking foliage featuring unique, full leaves with natural perforations. Its lush, tropical appearance adds a touch of exotic elegance to any indoor space.

Give your Monstera indirect, bright light to thrive. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves. Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even growth.

Water your Monstera when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure thorough watering, allowing excess water to drain away to prevent root rot. In winter, reduce watering frequency to prevent overhydration. As with all plants, drainage is important, so make sure when you do water your Monstera, the water has somewhere to go so it doesn’t sit at the bottom of the soil and cause root rot or fungal problems.

Provide adequate humidity by misting the leaves or placing a tray of pebbles filled with water beneath the plant. Regularly dust the leaves to keep them clean and allow for optimal photosynthesis. Consider repotting every 1-2 years to refresh the soil and encourage growth.

Be cautious if you have pets or small children, as Monstera deliciosa is mildly toxic if ingested. Keep it out of reach, or consider placing it in a hanging basket or elevated area for safety. If consumed, it may cause irritation and discomfort, so seek medical attention if necessary. We always recommend doing your own research on the toxicity of plants and making your own decisions about whether the plant is the right one for your home.
