Monstera deliciosa - Fruit Salad Plant (M)
Native to southern Mexico, Guatemala and Panama, Monstera deliciosa is one of the world's most popular indoor plants, desired for its enormous perforated foliage marked with distinct holes giving it the nickname the 'Swiss Cheese Plant'. A very large plant, Monstera's are known to climb up trees in rain forests, so do well with trellis or pole to grow upwards. They also produce an edible fruit when ripe, but beware, the rest of the plant is not edible! A beautiful statement plant in the garden or indoors, this is a cherished beauty around the world.
Medium indirect light is best for this tropical plant but it can tolerate low light and will grow faster in a brighter space. Too much sun and the leaves will yellow. Keep in a fairly humid environment by misting and watering weekly, keeping topsoil dry between watering. Avoid repotting if worried about the rapid growth of this plant.
|WATER||Water once the topsoil is dry, |
