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.
