This week we’re excited to introduce you to one of our newest houseplant members in the greenhouse! Monstera adansonii, also known as the Swiss Cheese plant is known for its large, heart-shaped leaves covered with perforations and its love to climb! 

This easy to grow tropical houseplant with origins in Central and South America adds a delicate modern touch to any space. Place it in a hanging planter and train it to trail or add a stake or trellis for upward growth- this plant can tell a beautiful story no matter its placement! 

How to care for your Monstera Adansonii: 

  • Light: Bright indirect light
  • Growth: 60′ with proper support
  • Soil: Peat-based potting soil in a pot with a large drain hole
  • Water: When the soil is nearly dry, it is time to water. Don’t allow the soil to dry out completely and don’t allow it to be soggy. Misting the plant frequently as well is ideal.
  • Temperature & Humidity: thrive on high humidity. Lots of moisture and high temperatures- similar to that of the jungle is ideal! A sunroom, conservatory or greenhouse are ideal! Kitchens or bathrooms that provide bright indirect light will also work! Ensure that temperatures stay above 60°F. 
  • Fertilizer: During summer and spring months using general-purpose houseplant fertilizer.
  • Maintenance: Trim the vines as needed if they start to look scraggly to encourage new growth.
