Monstera adansonii

This iconic houseplant is the smaller cousin to the famous Monstera deliciosa, but has smaller leaves and a more vining growth pattern. Just like its cousin, the Monstera adansonii naturally grows in the rainforests of Central & South America, and develops fenestrations, or holes in the leaves, so that the heavy rainfall can drop straight through the leaves without breaking them. 

The swiss cheese plant loves bright indirect light and well-draining tropical soil. Let the soil dry out about 75% or more before giving this plant a good thorough watering again. Its ability to thrive in many conditions makes it an easy and beginner-friendly plant, so you can keep it in medium indirect light as well -- but brighter light will encourage bigger, lusher leaves and more rapid growth. 

Pro tip: Place this plant in a bright bathroom window with indirect light to mimic its natural humid habitat, and watch it grow even faster!

If you’re worried about getting your water schedule right, we recommend using a Moisture Meter! These handy tools will help you gauge if your plant needs water or not, without the mess of sticking your hands in the soil to check. 

If a plant is out of stock, we apologize – we’re very grateful for our community’s support, and can sell out of certain plants quite quickly! We get new plants about once a week and try to source all our community’s favs as fast as we can. 

If you’re local to the LA area, we recommend coming into the shop when you can, especially if you’re looking for a new plant! We have much more plants in our store than we display online, as well as a full backyard greenhouse that houses our discounted rehab plants that need a bit more TLC from a new home. 

NOTE: Decorative pot not included. Toxic to animals when ingested.
