Primarily grown indoors for its attractive foliage and the height it grows up to. It's a plant that becomes a focal point of a room once it matures.
The holes and cuts within the leaves are said to form so the plant survives well within it's natural rain forest habitat when strong winds and heavy downpours (I mean very heavy) appear. Leaves without these cuts and holes would get broken easily because of their size and the force of the weather conditions.
The Swiss cheese plant is fairly easy to care for and maintain. This variety is called 'Monkey leaf'.
Aerial roots: This species has aerial roots which are there to support the plant growing. These roots which hang from a stem have to be pushed into the compost and they can be placed on a moss stick (plastic tube with netting filled with peat), if you wish the plant to grow very tall.
How it looks: The monstera deliciosa is primarily grown indoors for the lush green and glossy leaves. Each heart shaped leaf that appears starts of as a full leaf and then begins to form it's slits. These leaves will grow whilst the plant is very young and only a matter of a few inches tall, although they do not produce the slits until it matures more. This species looks similar to a palm tree.
|Temperature:||Temperatures between 65-80ºF (18-27ºC) are ideal. Lower than 65ºF (18Cº) will slow down this plants growth and below 50ºF (10ºC) will stop growth.|
|Light:||A fairly bright room or bright with plenty of shade is best. Direct sunlight will damage the leaves and not enough light can slow growth down.|
|Watering:||Between watering times allow the soil to become dry to the touch within the top couple of inches or so of soil.|
|Soil:||A peat based potting soil mix with perlite or sand is ideal. Soil that drains well is needed.|
|Re-Potting:||Re-pot once every two years approximately, during spring.|
|Fertilizer:||There is different advice from various sources about feeding (none wrong), but I would suggest fertilizing once a month with a diluted solution.|
|Humidity:||Average to high room humidity is needed, so you will need to increase the humidity of a normal room. Misting the leaves is helpful.|
|Propagation:||Propagate from a mature stem tip cuttings during summer below an aerial root at the node. Place the stem cutting about 1 or 2 inches deep in moist potting soil and water moderately. It should begin rooting within the first couple of weeks or so.|
|Pruning:||This plant can easily get out of hand once it has been growing for over 3 years or so and will need cutting back. The ideal method is to cut as many stems as needed away (these can be replanted) at the nodes during spring.|
