Swiss cheese vine (Monstera adansonii)

So many split leaves, so much minimalistic style in one plant. Its almost unfair and your friends faces will probably turn as green as its leaves when they see it. Put it in your bedroom, on your kitchen table or on top of your wheelie bin – it’ll be a showstopper no matter what.


As these naturally grow in the jungles of Central and South America, in the dappled shade of trees, they are not fans of direct sunlight and will thrive in an indirect bright spot. They should only be watered when the soil is nearly dry and do make sure all the water drains out - rotten roots are no-one's friends.

Being jungle plants, they love high humidity so place a tray of pebbles nearby and/ or mist frequently.
