Delicious fruit

The Latin name deliciosa refers to the Swiss Cheese Plant's 'delicious' fruit. The fruits flavour is a mixture of banana and pineapple and was once cultivated in central America.

Natural climber

In its natural, tropical forest environment, the Swiss Cheese Plant can be found climbing its way up trees. Use a moss pole if you want to train the plant upwards.

Fenestrations

Swiss Cheese Plants are unique in their formation: their leaves are covered in holes called fenestrations. A word which translates to mean ‘windows'.

Swiss Cheese Plant
Plant Bio

The Swiss Cheese plant or Monstera deliciosa is an epiphytic (grows on other plants) vine, native to the humid tropical rainforests of southern Mexico.

A member of the Araceae family.

The genus Monstera refers to its monstrous size and abnormally shaped leaves. The species name deliciosa refers to its delicious fruit that can reach a staggering 25cm long in the wild. Unfortunately, your Swiss Cheese Plant is unlikely to bear fruit indoors; you need to move to a tropical climate and plant it outside for that!

Also commonly called: Cheese Plant, Mexican Breadfruit...

CARE TIPS


Light 
| In their native environment, Swiss Cheese Plants grow up trees and, as a result, thrive with dappled sunlight. An hour or two of passing sunshine and lots of bright light is ideal.

Water | Swiss Cheese Plants like an element of drought. It is best to let the top few inches of soil dry out before giving them a drink. Take care to check them more in warmer summer months when they dry out quicker.

Humidity | Swiss Cheese Plants thrive in humid environments, but they aren't too fussy if it's on the drier side either.

Temperature | Like most tropical plants, Swiss Cheese Plants will go dormant under 10℃. For best growth, keep them in temperatures between 18℃ and 28℃
