A jungle giant made perfect for every home
One of the most iconic and recognisable house plants, the Monstera Deliciosa has been a favourite for decades now. Very easy to grow the monstera is the perfect variety for beginners who want a big impact plant for their collection. Originally from the tropical forests of Mexico these plants can grow over 60 feet tall in the wild. Indoors they are a little more tame, but their fast growth and large leaves make them a favourite for many. The characteristic leaves will slowly unfurl and darken to a beautiful deep green and the older the plant the more perforations will appear on the leaves; a trait which earnt it the name of 'Swiss Cheese Plant'. Monstera's can be displayed in a number of ways, either trained to climb up, usually with the assistance of a moss pole, or left to spread out wild and care free. NASA has also rated the monstera as one of the best air purifying houseplants.

Monsteras are happiest in bright light but not direct sun as this will cause their leaves to yellow. A little way back from a window in a bright room is ideal.
Water once a week, adding in a liquid plant feed once a month through summer for an added boost to growth. Allow the water to run right through the soil and out of the drainage holes of the nursery pot, leaving the water 10 minutes or so to sink through before returning to the display pot. This can be done once a week in summer but should be reduced in winter.
Mist the leaves When temperatures in the house rise due to summer or winter heating.
