MONSTERA (SWISS CHEESE)
The Swiss cheese plant gets its name from its large, heart-shaped leaves which, develop holes as the plant ages, making its leaves resemble Swiss cheese. Native to Central and South America, the Swiss cheese plant is a tropical perennial typically grown as a houseplant. It’s notoriously easy to care for and loves to climb—providing it with a stake, moss stick, or trellis that it can cling to can lead to some beautiful displays.
The plant needs warm interior temperatures of 18 Celsius or warmer. Swiss cheese plant also needs moderately moist soil and high humidity. The aerial roots need something to hang on to, so a wooden or moss-covered stake set into the middle of the pot will provide the extra support.
