The huge, glossy leaves of Monstera deliciosa are what makes this plant a star of the home, easily adding green colour and a bit of tropical exuberance to any room. Young leaves are solid, and as the plant matures they begin to show the characteristic holes and serrations, hence the name 'Swiss Cheese' plant. Naturally a lazy climber, your plant will enjoy the support of a moss pole (not supplied) where you can push its aerial roots into the moss as they develop, helping to support it as it grows.
A native of tropical rainforests, Monstera is a houseplant that's easy to keep happy - we recommend that you place it in bright but not direct sunlight indoors and mist the leaves regularly to provide humidity - plus they love a bit of a leaf-wipe now and again to remove dust and restore that glossy sheen.
