Swiss Cheese Vine

Monstera adansonii

This plant, often misidentified as the much rarer Monstera obliqua, is a trailing vine cousin to the popular Monstera deliciosa. The M. adansonii differs from M. obliqua  in that its leaves are not nearly as thin, and the holes in the leaves aren’t as big. This plant prefers bright, indirect light, as direct sunlight can burn the leaves. The Swiss Cheese Vine can be trained to climb, as in nature it climbs up other trees in the rain forest. Because of this, it thrives with higher humidity, with can be achieved with regular misting. It can be fertilized once or twice per year with a slow releasing mixture.
