Monstera Adansonii 'Swiss Cheese Vine'


Scientific Name: Monstera Adansonii

Common Name: Swiss Cheese Vine

Other Names: Adanson's Monstera, Five Holes Plant

Size: Height 40cm, Spread 25cm, Perfect Pot Size: 15cm Diameter

About the plant : The Adansonii is a close relative of the Cheese Plant, and is often referred to as the ‘Cheese Vine’ due to the holes in its leaves which get bigger as the plant matures. If you look closely the leaves also have an iridescent green shine which is absolutely gorgeous!

The Monstera Adansonii is a close relative of the Monstera Obliqua, which is one of the highly sought after and rare types of Monstera. The Adansonii in our opinion is much nicer and much more affordable! Use the hashtag #itsneverobliqua to find out more.

Care: A well drained soil with a loose structure is best for Monstera. We find a peat based compost provides good results. Rain water is ideal, however tap water that has had time for chemicals to evaporate will do just fine. Its best to water only when dry from the last time, and tip any excess water away afterwards. A bright room with indirect sunlight will provide the best growing conditions

Toxicity: As with most house plants, Monstera should not be eaten by humans or animals and are toxic to cats and dogs.

Native Locations: South & Central America
