This unique plant is actually a large, leafy structure thatdefinitely looks beautiful as a container plant or in your yard. The leaves ofthe Monstera Deliciosa are iconic and split to give it a truly beautiful design.When grown indoors they actually get quite large and they last for many yearsif cared for properly. It’s important to keep them away from children and petshowever as they are toxic.
You usually won’t see any flowers when you keep the MonsteraDeliciosa indoors, but if it’s taken outdoors to grow it will produce abeautiful flower that actually turns into a fruit. The fruits are edible,though the rest of the plant is not and is claimed to taste very good.
Ideal for warmer and very stable temperatures, this plantactually doesn’t require a lot of water and prefers indirect light rather thananything too direct. If it gets too much sun it will scorch while too littlewill cause a lack of perforations in the leaves.
Well-draining soil is important and so is plenty ofdrainage. You’ll also notice that as it grows it develops aerial roots sosomething to grow up is a great way to go. If those roots start getting alittle too wild for you they can be trimmed or tucked back down into the potbut they won’t damage the interior of your home.
A damp cloth or even a little dish soap and water can beused to keep the leaves clean and a little fertilizer can be used during thegrowing season to keep it going. You will notice that younger Monstera’s willhave very little splits in their leaves, as the swiss cheese vine continues togrow, the more splits it will develop.
