Size Guide

Monstera deliciosa, or ‘Swiss Cheese Plant’ as some call it, is a tropical plant from the Araceae family. Its name comes from the Latin meaning “abnormal” because of its odd, perforated leaves that are often punched through with holes. This mighty vining plant is grown indoors in temperate climates but can be grown outdoors in zones 10 and 11.

  • FAQ about Monstera deliciosa ‘Swiss Cheese Plant’:
    • How much light does a Monstera deliciosa need?
      • It’s best to place your Monstera deliciosa where it can receive medium to bright indirect light. While it is tolerant of lower light conditions, you may notice leggy growth as a result, so a spot where it will receive bright indirect light a few feet removed from a southern, western, or eastern facing window is ideal.
    • Why are my Monstera deliciosa’s leaves curling upwards?
      • The tight curling of new leaves is normal before they unfurl, however, curling on old leaves is your plant giving you a warning sign. Monstera deliciosa leaves curling is usually a sign of underwatering or low humidity. Other causes include overwatering, pest infestations, heat stress, or your Monstera being rootbound.
    • Why is my Monstera deliciosa leaning?
      • If your Monstera deliciosa is bending, drooping, or curling, you likely have an issue with watering, the type of sunlight the plant is getting, or an issue with the soil. Monstera plants require a moderate amount of water, indirect sunlight, and well-draining soil in order to thrive and stay upright indoors.
    • Should I repot my Monstera deliciosa?
      • You can repot your Monstera deliciosa at any time of year. Since these plants prefer to be pot-bound, it's a good idea to repot only every two to three years. Once your monstera is in a container with a diameter of eight inches or larger, top-dress with fresh potting soil rather than repotting.
