6" Monstera Adansonii Hanging Basket
The Swiss cheese plant, Monstera adansonii, gets its name from its large, heart-shaped leaves, which as it ages, become covered with holes that resemble Swiss cheese. This beauty stands tall and climbs a wooden pole and is extremely full - we DO NOT come by these glorious specimens often.
Monstera adansonii are native to the jungles of Central and South America, so they grow in the wild under the coverage of trees. Therefore, the plants grow best in indirect sunlight. If it's in a spot with direct light, limit it to just 2 to 3 hours of morning sun.
Before you water a Swiss cheese vine, do the knuckle test—stick your finger up to the knuckle into the soil to see how wet or dry the soil is. If the soil is nearly dry, water it. Don't let the soil dry out entirely.
Temperature and Humidity
M. adansonii is best grown in a conservatory or greenhouse where humidity, temperature, and light are all maximized. These are deep-jungle plants that thrive on very high humidity, lots of moisture during the rainy season, and high temps.
