If there is one houseplant that has inspired generation after generation of indoor gardeners, then it has to be the ever popular (and easy to grow) Swiss Cheese Plant, and this new form, is much more compact and even more undemanding!
With glossy, rich green leaves laves with irregular holes, plants will trail gently over their pot if left untrained or can be treated as a climber and tied to a support.
Like its bigger cousin, it's easy to grow, and gives instant impact wherever it's placed, and everyone can benefit from the improvement to health and wellbeing that plants and gardening can bring.
The glossy, tropical leaves of the Monkey Leaf are what makes this plant a star, easily adding a lush, exotic feel to any room.
Young leaves are solid, and as the plant matures, they begin to show the characteristic holes which make the leaf resemble a mask. Naturally a lazy climber, your plant will enjoy the support of a moss pole (not supplied) where you can push its aerial roots into the moss as they develop, helping to support it as it grows.
A native of tropical rainforests, Monstera is a houseplant that's easy to keep happy - we recommend that you place it in bright but not direct sunlight indoors and mist the leaves regularly to provide humidity - plus they love a bit of a leaf-wipe now and again to remove dust and restore that glossy sheen.
