4" Monstera deliciosa
Bright indirect light
Allow soil to dry almost completely between watering
Monstera deliciosa, commonly referred to as the "Swiss Cheese Plant", is a very common indoor plant. The foliage on this plant is green with heart shaped leaves. As the plant matures the leaves will develop fenestrations (or splits).
To encourage fenestrations it's best to allow your Monstera deliciosa to climb a coco pole or other support structure.
Caring for your Monstera deliciosa is pretty easy. This easy care plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow your plant to dry out almost completely between watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water. Provide your Monstera with plenty of bright indirect light.
Monstera, also referred to as "Swiss Cheese Plant", are a type of aroid native to many different countries in Latin America. Monstera can be found growing in its natural habitat in Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, etc.
In the wild, Monstera have a variety of growth habits. They can climb or spread as ground cover. If they are allowed to climb, Monstera leaves will become much larger and begin to fenestrate. They are semi-epiphytic.
Monstera can grow in low indirect light but prefer medium to bright indirect light. If grown in low light conditions their growth will slow.
They tend to be easy to care for and make a great addition to any houseplant collection.
This beautiful plant came to me in pristine condition! It was perky and had been cared for well before I received it. The Canopy company packs your new beauty very good! Thank you so much!
My order was processed and delivered within a week. The plant arrived healthy and well-packaged. It continues to grow in its new home. Canopy always provides quality nursery stock.
I recently moved from Hawaii to Texas. I had to leave most all of my plants behind. When I got settled in Texas I knew I wanted to build back up my plant collection. I found Camopy Plants and ordered several items. The monstera I received was packaged perfectly and arrived healthy and beautiful (even with the 100+ degree Texas heat wave).
I think this is the 3rd one I’ve ordered over the last couple of years from here, and they’ve all been beautiful! Canopy is my favorite plant shop!
