Fill your home with clean air, style and greenery with the handsome Monstera Delicosa. Made popular by its unique perforated leaves, it offers an easy and instant way to style your home. Nicknamed the Swiss Cheese plant and listed as one of NASA’s top air-purifying plants it has plenty to boast about - and it’s pretty easy to take care of too. Place it in the right spot and you’ll be rewarded with gorgeous glossy green leaves that slowly unfurl, darken and perforate to produce the distinctive shape we love.
Your monstera will come complete with a 22cm ceramic pot so it’s ready to go straight out from the box. Your plant and pot will come in separate boxes so simply drop the nursery pot into the ceramic display pot and your monstera can get on with looking fabulous.
Your monstera will happily sit in gentle sunlight; too much direct sun will yellow the leaves whereas full shade can hinder growth. If temperatures do begin to rise be sure to mist the leaves as the monstera likes increased humidity at these times. A small dose of plant food once a month in the growing season can also boost new growth dramatically, allowing the monstera to quickly fill a space. Be aware though, the monstera leaves are toxic to cats and dogs so if you have pets it’s best to keep your plant in a place they can’t easily reach.
