Botanical Name: Monstera adansonii
Common Name: Swiss Cheese Plant

Origin: South America, Central America

  • Swiss Cheese Plant features large, heart-shaped leaves that develop perforated holes as it ages due to a process called fenestration
  • Designed in our exclusive versatile, neutral planter with ribbed border detail at rim and contoured base; break-resistant and watertight
  • Measures approximately 8-12"H x 6"D
  • Tending Tip: Your Swiss Cheese Plant loves to climb; in the wild, it uses air roots to push itself upward on an adjoining tree or woody vine; when growing it as a houseplant, you can simulate this by inserting a moss stick in the center of the pot
