Monstera deliciosa - Split-Leaf Philodendron Swiss Cheese Plant - Monstera
- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
Wow your house guests with leaves that can get up to 2-feet wide with swiss cheese-like holes and splits that resemble a split-leaf philodendron. Please note that Monstera leaves start out solid with no holes or splits, but as they mature, they get their characteristic features. Monstera is a rainforest plant that also makes an ideal houseplant. Grow with a support pole to encourage the roots to climb, and it may grow even taller for you. Monstera can be grown outdoors in frost-free locations where it can grow crazy tall, wider, and can even develop blooms.
• Average mature height: 5-8 feet if grown indoors
• Watering: Allow soil to dry out somewhat before watering
• Light: Bright indirect light for best results but can tolerate low light
• Zone: 10-12 if grown outdoors
A baby plant, that is 3-8 inches tall, will arrive at your home in a 3-inch-deep pot. Then, raise your new baby to maturity under your caring, green thumb.
