House Plant

Cheese Plant (aka Monstera deliciosa)

  • Location:

    I am native to South Eastern Brazil.
  • Looks:

    I have a retro feel, with distinctive perforated leaves at the end of long stems.
  • Height:

    I am approx 72cm in my pot
  • Environment:

    I like bright but indirect light, keep me out of the sun. Mist my leaves if the air is dry.I don't like cold drafts.
  • Flowers:

    I have dramatic cup shaped flowers in the wild, but please don't expect me to bloom indoors.
  • Grooming:

    Give my leaves a wipe occasionally, the dust stops me picking up rays.
  • Life Span:

    I have an average rate of growth and will climb if allowed to.
  • Feeding:

    Give me a general purpose fertiliser ever 60 days from Spring to Autumn.
  • Fact:

    The holes in my leaves help me catch shafts of light on the forest floor.
