This stunning house plant or the 'Swiss Cheese' plant has been such a design influence over the past few years in clothing, soft furnishing and is a firm favourite in the modern home.

These plants can survive in low light, but they’ll grow much better and develop large leaves with holes in bright, indirect sunlight. Place a few feet away from a south-, west-, or east-facing window.
Monstera plants don’t like to be too wet or too dry, so go somewhere in between. Keep an eye on the soil and water when the top 1-2 inces of soil gets dry. Don’t soak the soil, and don’t get the leaves wet; they don’t need a lot of water.
This thing can GROW, so pruning is important to make sure it doesn’t take over your house. Only repot every two years or so, and cut back new growth when you don’t want the plant to get any bigger.
It’s also very important to keep your monstera’s leaves clean and pores clear so the plant can carry out photosynthesis unimpeded. Every week or so, use a clean, damp cloth to gently clean dust off the leaves. Or, better yet, use our Leaf Shine, which cleans, adds shine, and also protects your plant from insects, fungus, and bacteria!
