Scientific Name: Monstera deliciosa
Common Names: Delicious Monster, Swiss Cheese Plant
Our Delicious Monsters come in a 19cm, 23cm or 26cm Nursery Pot.
Delicious Monsters have been a classic house plant for years! They simply doesn't seem to go out of fashion. Perhaps because of their lush green foliage which adds an urban jungle feeling to any living space.
Delicious Monsters derive their name from the fact that they produce edible delicious seeds (only in the wild) and can grow up to 9 meters tall (again, only in the wild).
This super-care easy plant will be happy in any space where it does not come directly into contact with a draft or direct sunlight. Lounge, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom... really anywhere!
Consider adding a Mosspole, once your plant gets older, to mimic its natural habit of growing up a tree trunk.
Follow these instructions to keep your Delicious Monster healthy and happy:
Water: Keep the soil dryer in winter and evenly moist in summer. Be careful not to overwater, so check the drainage to make sure the soil can dry nicely inbetween waterings. Generally speaking: water every 7-10 days in summer and every 14-20 days in winter.
Light: Medium to bright indirect light. Can take some softer direct sunlight.
Humidity: Medium to high humidity. Normal room humidity should be fine.
Fertilize: Balanced Fertilizer every 2 weeks, reduce to monthly in winter.
