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. Wonderfully 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 evidently more tame, but their fast growth and large leaves still makes them a favourite for many. These characterful leaves will slowly unfurl and darken to an emerald shade, and the older the plant, the more perforations will appear; a trait which has earned it the name 'Swiss Cheese Plant'. Your Monstera can be displayed in a number of ways, either trained to climb upwards, usually with the assistance of a moss pole, or left to spread out more naturally. Aside from offering an effortless display of beautiful foliage, NASA has also rated this plant as one of the best houseplants for purifying the air!

How Your Plant Will Arrive
About Your Plant
The plant pictured to the right is fresh from our nursery and details what you are going to receive. Your plant will arrive in a standard nursery pot (any planters displayed are for illustrative purposes only, so will not be included with your order). Your house plant will be delivered straight to your door from our specialist tropical nursery. They will provide optimal growing conditions for your plant, keeping it happy and healthy.
Plant Theory has sustainability at its heart. This means that every plant will be delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. The intuitive box design is plastic free and will keep your plant safe on its journey to your door.
We believe that anyone, regardless of ability can successfully grow their own plants at home, and do so in an eco-friendly and sustainable way.
Everyone should have the chance to experience the benefits that plants bring to our lives, and we have put a lot of effort into making sure that all of our products are easy to grow, even for beginners.
Sustainability is at the heart of our ethos and we have done everything we can to ensure that all of our products are as sustainable as possible, be it our plastic free, fully recyclable packaging, GM free seeds or ethically sourced compost.
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.
