About Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera adansonii)

Care Instructions

Light Requirements:

Monstera adansonii thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate low light conditions but grows best with plenty of indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Water Requirements:

Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.

Soil Requirements:

Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix designed for tropical plants or a blend of potting soil with peat moss and perlite works well.

Humidity:

Monstera adansonii prefers high humidity levels. Regular misting or placing a humidifier nearby can help maintain the necessary humidity, especially in dry indoor conditions.

Pro Tip

Monstera adansonii is a climber and will benefit from a moss pole or trellis for support. This will help the plant grow taller and produce larger leaves with more pronounced holes.
