The much sought after Monstera is a plant of many names; the most common of which are the Swiss Cheese or Cheese Plant, because the holes in his large, heart-shaped leaves are similar to the holes in Swiss cheese. The word Monstera comes from the Latin word for monster, most likely referring to his large leaves and his potential to reach epic proportions. This monstrous beauty is in high demand and short supply so he might look quite modest in size when he arrives at your door, but don’t worry, these green guys are fast growers and will soon be a fabulous green feature in your chosen space.
Please note: Your Monstera plant and pot will come in separate boxes, you simply drop the plant in its plastic growing pot, into the ceramic and it is ready for its forever home! The ceramic is sized to allow your plant to grow.
Here at TLB, we love the Monstera so much that we’ve dedicated a whole blog to him. If you’re keen to know more about this fabulous plant, hop over to the Hot House to have a read.
Super cool plant, love the oversized pot!
It’s such a nice addition to any space, I have mine in my desk and it just makes me so happy to look at it.
I’ve had it just a few weeks and it is already getting new leaves♡
?If, like me, you are at all nervous about your ability to keep plants alive, this is a fantastic company to buy from. I must admit I have a terrible track record but am happy to report my Little Botanical Monstera is absolutely thriving (along with all my other plants from this amazing company!)
?I love that all of their well chosen, lovingly cultivated, low maintenance plants come in beautiful clay pots, and are so reasonably priced, and that the people behind it all are so friendly and helpful.
?My Monstera was my first ‘proper’ plant after graduating from the oh-so-easy succulents, and it has done so well since I got it months ago…it’s been no trouble at all and I’m absolutely delighted with it! ?

I love my Monstera plant. I bought it about 8 months ago and it’s growing well and easy to care for. Great addition to my plants. Pot arrived broken but the company sent another one. Fantastic customer service. I can’t stop myself from buying more plant !

I bought this because it reminded me of one my parents had when I was growing up. I love TLB and put in a big order. All healthy all looked amazing. Packaging was second to none. Not a single leaf damaged

Bought as a gift for my girlfriend to brighten her work space as I wanted to find something more permanent than simply flowers. It arrived very quickly and was exceptionally well packaged. She was delighted with it, literally hugging the plant upon opening the box. She now has plans to buy more in the future.
It’s a lovely plant and while I’m no expert, for the plant and the pot to be included all for £30 seems very competitively priced.
Also as an additional pro, great website, easy to use and easy to compare products which I greatly appreciated.

Really healthy and modern looking plant, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one of these. We have it in our kitchen on the work surface and it fits in really well

First time I have bought plants online and I am over the moon with this. Looks amazing in my lounge in the grey pot.

I discovered TLB on the John Lewis website and have since placed two orders directly with them. I am now the proud owner of seven gorgeous plants and cannot express enough the gratitude I feel for the joy they have brought me while working from home. THANK YOU!

I ordered this for my wife as a Mothers day present from our children. Delivery was swift and everything was well packaged. On opening the package the plant was healthy. The Monstera is simply Beautiful and has plenty of new growth already. The pot that came with it is really nice and of the highest quality. My wife loves it.

Beautiful, healthy plant. They really care for the plants whilst they are growing, and you can really see that in what is delivered. A sturdy pot with a lovely tone of grey that compliments the plant well. Also my plant arrived with such a big leaf that I absolutely loved!

I absolutely love my Monstera! It’s my first plant, bought a Chameadorea too and they look lovely together. Got in touch with customer service to check about care and they were really helpful and quick to reply. Bought an Aloe succulent too and I love it, I recommend the Plantsmith spray too to keep the Monstera extra happy!
such a gorgeous healthy plant, so pretty, and the service at the little Botanical was really great, highly recommend, and I love the big pots!
Love this plant! Arrived healthy and very quickly got new growth. It’s a beautiful feature in our fireplace and a real focal point in the lounge with the oversized pot. Easy to care for – quick water once a week, and a little mist every now and then. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something to make a statement!
Loving my new plant. Super healthy and looks great in my bedroom.
