Soil should dry out slightly between waterings. Adansonii will also indicate if it needs water as it will clearly wilt, though it does perk back up quickly!



Provide as much bright light as possible for adansonii to promote healthy growth. The brighter the room, the larger the leaves will be.



This plant is an easy-care plant in that it requires little attention, but does not respond well to drought. Provide with a pole to climb on for optimal growth. The higher the plant is allowed to climb, the larger and holier the leaves will become.

Monstera (adansonii) - Swiss Cheese

Dubbed "swiss cheese vine" because of the holes in the leaves the plant produces as they grow. Juvenile plants have less holes in their leaves and produce more as the plant ages and climbs.


The plant comes in a plastic grower’s pot, don’t forget to add a tabletop pot (for 4”- 6” plants) or floor pot (for 8” plants and up)!
