Swiss Cheese Plant

(Monstera deliciosa): Medium size • Easy effort • Bright light

Also known as a Monstera, this plant gets its name from its heart-shaped leaves which develop holes as it grows. This allows for light to reach the entire plant.


Prefers bright, indirect sunlight, but can tolerate some direct sunlight.


Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing the soil to slightly dry out between waterings. Increase the frequency with increased light. Prefers high humidity, but can tolerate average indoor humidity. Mist frequently.


 • Temperature: Prefers temperatures between 18°C and 30°C. Keep above 16°C at all times.

 • Food: Fertilize once a month in spring and summer. Do not fertilize in winter.

 • Toxicity: If ingested, the leaves are mildly toxic to cats, dogs, and humans.
