  Philodendron Swiss Cheese (Monstera Adansonii) is best know for its large, highly fenestrated leaves.  This plant is a stunning addition to almost any room, as it requires little care.  It is a fast grower, and will produce even larger leaves if given something to climb.  


Type: Tropical 
Height: 12in - 96in
Spread: 12in - 36in
Zone: 10-11
Pet Safe: Toxic to pets.


General Maintenance: Swiss Cheese plants can ge grown as trailing plants, or trained to climp up a trellis, moss pole, etc.  They enjoy being slightly root bound, so only repot when necessary.  They are very easy to propagate form cuttings, to make a fuller looking plant, or to share with your plant-loving friends.  

Temperature: Thrives in normal household temperatures, between 17º-26º Celsius.  Keep away from drafts, vents, and drastic temperature changes.

Light: Plenty of bright, indirect light is ideal. 

Watering: Water only when the top 2-3 inches of the soil is dry.  They prefer their soil to be on the drier side, so ensure your pot has proper drainage to avoid root rot.  

Soil: A 1:1 mix of general potting mix, along with a chunkier medium such as orchid mix is ideal.

Fertilizer: Feed with a general water soluble fertilizer every 3-4 weeks during spring and summer.
