'Monstera Deliciosa' isn't from Switzerland or a cheese, but a unique tropical vine with quirky vibrant 'split' leaves.

As a young plant, the leaves may not have split yet, but this will happen as they mature.

 Bright indirect light

 Water lightly every 1-2 weeks 

Pot Size: 6cm

Height: 10-15cm

  Light

Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, similar to what you might find on a rainforest floor.

 Water & Food 

During the warm seasons, water lightly every 1-2 weeks ensuring the soil is always moist, but not sodden. Also feed monthly. 

During colder months, allow the soil to dry so the plants' roots can breathe.

 Humidity & Temperature

They like normal-to-cool room temperature and humidity, but don't allow the temperature to fall below 10°C. And keep away from dry air. 

Native to tropical forests of southern Mexico, south to Panama. It has been introduced to many tropical areas, and has become a mildly invasive species in Hawaii, Seychelles, Ascension Island and the Society Islands. 'Monstera,' meaning monstrous, refers to the size these plants can grow, reaching 20 metres tall in their native habitat. 

Its most recognisable feature is the leaf splits, thought to have evolved to allow light to penetrate the lower leaves helping the plant to absorb more light with less energy.
