Philodendron Monstera Swiss Cheese Plant
The Philodendron Monstera is an eye catching and easy to care for plant. One of the most noticeable characteristics of the Monstera is its glossy heart shaped like leaves which split from the leaf edge to the center as the plant matures. The Monstera needs medium to bright indirect light and it can adapt well under lower light conditions. It also does well with medium humidity, so consider spraying your Monstera periodically. Water your Philodendron Monstera well until the water drains from the bottom of the drip holes and allow the top of the soil to dry before watering again. Reduce watering in the winter to prevent water logging your plant.
Pinch and prune monstera vines regularly, because they can easily grow wildly out of control. Pinch off new growing tips with your fingers at the maximum height you're allowing for your monstera and anywhere you'd like to see the vine branch. Prune out excessive growth that's producing few or no leaves and new growth that appears at the outside edges of the plant. Thinning the vines inside the plant will give it room to grow more and larger leaves.
The Monstera's unique characteristics make it the perfect choice to add a unique decor to your home or office space. Indoor house plants are proven to be excellent air purifiers which help decrease stress and anxiety while stimulating creativity and productivity. Great for yourself or as a gift.
