Details

Nicknamed the “swiss cheese plant”, the Monstera deliciosa is famous for its quirky natural leaf holes. These holes are theorized to maximize sun fleck capture on the forest floor. Depending on the season and maturity of the plant, your Monstera could arrive with no holes just yet, and be sized to grow alongside you.

Plant Bio

Monstera deliciosa is a species of evergreen tropical vine that is a part of Araceae, the aroid family. Native to the Tropical Americas, it is one of the few aroids which produces edible fruit, hence the species epithet deliciosa. However, it's incredibly rare that a Monstera will flower or produce fruit indoors. Instead, this plant is famous for its beautiful broad green leaves with natural leaf-holes, called fenestrations, which have led to the rise of its nickname, ‘swiss cheese plant’. These holes are theorized to maximize sun fleck capture on the forest floor by increasing the spread of the leaf while decreasing the mass of leaf cells to support.
