You might have heard this plant referred to as the "swiss cheese vine". These Monstera's are a fan favorite. They love to climb or hang in baskets. Give it something to climb on and the leaves can get huge!
Considering the natural habitat of a Monstera adansonii, it grows in the sparsely lit jungles of South and Central America. Keeping this in mind, this plant prefers to be near sunlight, but not directly in it. Bright indirect light is the best for a good growing Monstera Adansonii.
Generally water about once a week in indoor houseplant conditions. Make sure that the soil never completely dries out and keep it slightly moist.
When grown inside, they tend to prefer rooms kept at a temperature between 64 – 81 °F. Anything below 64°F will tremendously slow down any plant growth. Below this temperature, you risk that your Adansonii is wilting and dying from cold. It can take short periods of cold temperatures but longer exposures will result in die back or death of your plant.
The humidity requirement of your Monstera adansonii will be somewhat higher than other houseplants. Keep the room anywhere between an average or high humidity for the happiest plant. You can always mist the leaves to ensure that these needs are met. This is not necessary to keep your Monstera Adansonii plant alive but can increase its health and growth.
These plants are in 4” and 6" pots and are shipped in their pots.
