Nicknamed the “swiss cheese plant”, the quirky Monstera deliciosa is famous for its natural leaf holes. These holes are theorized to maximize sun fleck capture and develop over time as the plant matures. Sized to ship best, our large Monstera arrives with room to grow as it adapts to your home’s conditions.
Thrives in bright indirect to medium light.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Monsteras can benefit from filtered water or leaving water out overnight before using.
The Monstera is famous for its natural leaf holes, or fenestrations. The holes are theorized to maximize sun capture by increasing the spread of the leaf while decreasing the mass of leaf cells to support.
