- Monstera deliciosa, the Swiss cheese plant, is a species of flowering plant native to tropical forests of southern Mexico, south to Panama.
- It has been introduced to many tropical areas and has become a mildly invasive species in Hawaii, Seychelles, Ascension Island, and the Society Islands.
- It’s extremely common for monsteras to be confused with split-leaf philodendron, particularly in less mature plants.
- Though the two are related (they’re part of the same plant family), an easy way to tell these plants apart is to look at the leaves: split-leaf philodendrons have perforated leaves but lack holes.
- Plant it in a pot with drainage holes using a standard potting soil that contains peat.
- Peat helps to trap moisture without becoming waterlogged.
- For best results, feed your plant once a month throughout the spring and summer.
- A little bit of food will go a long way to encourage growth and root health.
- Put the plant near a window where it will receive bright, but indirect, sunlight.
- Avoid strong, direct sunlight because it may burn the leaves.
- When its soil becomes dry to a depth of 1-2”, water your monstera directly into the pot so as not to moisten foliage and just enough to keep the soil from completely drying out.
- Don’t allow the pot to stand in water, as this will cause root rot.
