  • Light Required

    A monstera cheese does not need a lot of light. So it will handle many types of light conditions but the only one not to place it in, is direct bright sunlight constantly. As the Swiss Cheese Plant is one which originates from the rainforest and usually lies on the bottom of the forest. It doesn’t need a great deal of light to thrive.

  • Watering

    Water the Swiss cheese plant when the top inch or so of compost has become dry and be sure to let the water drain away afterwards. Wipe the leaves occasionally to keep them dust free and shiny. Feed once a month in spring and summer.

  • Best Growing Conditions

    In cooler climates, grow in a warm greenhouse or as houseplant (minimum 10-15ºC) in a draught-free position, in moist but well-drained, loam-based potting compost, in bright indirect light with moderate to high humidity; sponge the leaves to keep them free of dust and dirt, and water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month in the growing season, but water sparingly in winter; it can use its aerial roots to climb if given support, for example on a moss-covered pole; in warmer climates, grow outdoors in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in partial shade.
