Tax included.


Looking to up your plant game? The Monstera adansonii has the wow factor. The fast-growing vine is meant to climb not trail. Providing structural support is key to creating a thick luscious jungle. Regardless of how you choose to take on the unruly swiss cheese vine, be prepared to spend some one-on-one time. It's a fast-growing vine and will need semi-regular trimmings to maintain some semblance of organization.

Grow Pot Size: 4” and 6"
Overall Height Including Grow Pot: 10-18" depending on grow pot size.
Plant Care Level: Easy

Key Benefits 

These holes are a theorized evolutionary adaptation! Naturally, the plant can be found in jungles where it climbs through tree branches searching for light. The holes allow it to spend less energy on areas that may be overshadowed by the canopy above. 

Monstera 'Swiss Cheese' Care Tips

How to care for information:

  • Binomial Name: Monstera adansonii
  • Provide your plant with a moss or coco coir pole to climb on. This will provide support for the fast-growing vine. And it will produce larger leaves. 
  • How to care for information:
  • As a plant matures they lose their bottom foliage. This is completely normal and unavoidable. If the upper leaves are turning yellow, you may need to reassess your watering routine or move the plant away from direct sunlight.  
  • Allow the top 2 inches of the soil to dry before watering. Water thoroughly and remove excess water. Do not allow the soil to completely dry out. 
  • Prefers bright, indirect light. Can tolerate low to medium light. But the brighter the light, the happier the plant will be.

It prefers a location with bright, indirect light. It can tolerate direct sunlight for a short period of time. The leaves do turn yellow and that is completely normal.

Pet Friendly: Unfortunately, the Monstera is not pet-friendly.

Location Suggestions: This plant looks amazing climbing up a moss pole in the corner of a room.
