Buy Monstera deliciosa - swiss cheese plant Large 80cm - swiss cheese plant (syn Mostera pertusum ): This popular swiss cheese plant is easy to grow

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: good potting compost

    This plant has been a favorite for many years now. Once it gets going it can be truly impressive with large, glossy heart shaped leaves which as the plant matures have the distinctive perforated and deeply cut leaves. It originates from tropical rainforests where the aerial roots help it to climb up into the canopy, so as your plant grows you want to gently push the aerial roots into the moss covered pole. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Keep it out of direct sunlight, ideally it likes a bright spot, and mist the leaves, particularly if the room is warm and dry. Also the leaves will appreciate being given a wash sometimes to keep them clean and dust free. This plant likes a moist soil but not a waterlogged soil, so in the winter feel the soil before you water it. In the summer you can water more freely.

Notes on Monstera deliciosa - swiss cheese plant

"You will have come across this plant when you open a fashion magazine or on social media the Monstera is very trendy. Large, green leaves with Swiss cheese like holes. you can't miss it. This tough guy also makes a great decorative room divider and is a living air purifier. Just do not either, over water or sit next to radiators."

I ordered the Cheese Plant yesterday 31st January at 11.42am, it arrived today 1st February at 10.30am, excellent service. The plant was packed well and is healthy and is as described, height etc. Very impressed with Crocus, will definitely order from them again.

I'd been looking for a cheese plant in so many garden centres and came across one on here, having never bought plants online I was a bit dubious, but I'm so glad I did. The quality is outstanding and it's been growing new leaves every week since I've had it. Really, really pleased.

Today this plant arrived in a box and looked incredibly healthy. Once removed the leaves slowly dropped into a proud position and brought character to the room, two bright lime green baby leaves opening already. I could not be happier with my purchase and am already looking to order more plants. I ordered this plant with a pot recommended which was the perfect fit, it arrived this morning with great communication of its whereabouts all the way I couldn't be happier

Hi I bought the monstera around three months ago it has grown quite alot and doesn't have support at the top. Do I need another moss pole attached to the old one to help support it? Any guidance would be great

Hello, Ideally when a plant outgrows its moss pole, you should very gently detach it from its existing pole and replace the pole with a taller one, before re-attaching (usually by tying the stems on) to the new pole.
