Description

WHEN YOU HEAR THE NAME “MONSTERA,” YOU KNOW IT’S GOING TO BE BIG

The Monstera Deliciosa or Split Leaf Philodendrum has been a favorite house plant for years – and with good reason. It’s wonderfully easy going, and freshens up any indoor corner. But, think ahead. The Monstera needs space – indoors or out, and it loves to climb.

Many refer to the Monstera as the “Swiss Cheese” plant, due to its leaves’ large cut ribbons or holes.  Interestingly, it’s believed leaves with large holes are more resistance to downpours or extreme weather, like hurricanes. In addition, light levels that reach down onto the floor of a tropical rainforest (its native habitat) are quite low. Leaves with ribbons have a larger surface area to better capture what little light filters down.

You usually won’t see any flowers when you keep the Monstera indoors, but if taken outdoors, it produces a beautiful flower that actually turns into a fruit. The fruits are edible and reminiscent in taste to pineapple-banana. The leaves of the plant, however, are toxic, if ingested.

Ideal for warmer and stable temperatures, the Monstera does not require a lot of water and prefers indirect light. Too much sun can scorch the plant, and cause lack of perforations in the leaves. Well-draining soil is important, too.  Indoors, a damp cloth or even a little dish soap and water can be used to keep the leaves clean.

    My Monstera arrived Lush and Gorgeous. It is sitting next to a Peace Lily and they make an awesome pair.

    I already have this plant and it is beautiful. I need to give Customer Service a 10. My plants did not arrive on time. Gave the shipper another day I know how it is with shipments they have a lot to do. I tracked again and it was still in the same state with no shipment date. I called Plant Vine Customer service and they were on it fast within 24 hours I was notified why the shipment did not arrive. Customer service in return got me another shipment out. The manager in shipping do not allowed their plants to be held up they guaranteed 2 days and that is it. This company impress me so much not only is their plants beautiful but customer service is excellent. We should not only rate the plant but the people who grow and ship our plants on time and keep up with the shipment. Again I rate Plant Vine customer service a “10”!!!!!!!

    My “Monstera Deliciosa” arrived in great shape and is healthy and thriving! I’m anxious to repot in larger container. It appears to be a fast grower ! Many thx. I’ll be placing more orders as you have proved your quality and professional approach to plant sales. In other words…. I trust you !

  30. Nicole (verified owner)

    I did not receive a photo of my plant before shipping as I expected to (per the shipping email I received). However the plant was in relatively good condition when it arrived. 2 leaves had to be pruned due to damage, but there are 2 new leaves growing, so it works out! LOVE the addition of the bamboo stalk so I can tie the big leaves up also 🌱💕 Thanks PlantVine!

  31. Lexy (verified owner)

    Our monstera deliciosa is absolutely gorgeous! The value for the money is fantastic. It was dense and very well-packaged, with beautifully split leaves. We named her Solveig and cannot wait to add more members to our growing indoor garden.

  34. Zaida L. (verified owner)

    I am so happy with my plant purchase. I found Plant Vine through a simple google search. I knew what I was looking for and found it with Plant Vine– a LARGE Monstera. I love it so much. It was in wonderful condition upon arrival and is thriving in its new home. I am already plotting my next purchase. Thank you for prompt delivery and a beautiful, healthy plant.

  35. Claudia F. (verified owner)

    Beautiful plant and came in great condition!

  36. Allison A. (verified owner)

  45. Jordan H. (verified owner)

    I ordered 6 plants and 5/6 were extremely well acclimated into my home. This one being one of them! The only reason I’m not giving 6/6 is that 1 has some discoloration on the leaves, but I moved it into a room with more filtered sunlight… so that could be a ‘me’ problem. Overall, I checked out 5 different websites offering plant delivery and PlantVine had the best prices and a fantastic selection!

  46. Carolyn (verified owner)

    My plant arrived very healthy and in great condition! Would absolutely buy plants again from them 😊

    Some splitting on the larger leaves, which was somewhat disappointing although not entirely unexpected. It is a little smaller than Anticipated at the price point but it’s very vibrant and seems very healthy so I’m looking forward to watching it grow!

    My Monstera arrived healthy and looks great. Very pleased with the size and the price of the plant. I’ve ordered from other companies and the plant was not as big and full and more expensive. I will shop you again and spread the word about your quality and value.

  85. Cortni B. (verified owner)

    Beautiful plant. Better than I imagined. Some leaves were bent, but I imagine that’s impossible to avoid with shipping such a huge plant! Has new growth and seems very healthy! I will definitely be purchasing from Plant Vine again!

  86. Allan Sulbaran (verified owner)

  87. Ashley B. (verified owner)

    It came a little beat up. A few of the leaves were broken. I am still giving 5 stars because it’s huge! Also, it is full of new baby leaves. Shipping was also quick and inexpensive. Overall I’m happy with my purchase and will probably order something else.

  88. Jazz K. (verified owner)

    I am extremely content with my Monstera Deliciosa! Never considered purchasing a plant online before, I go to local nurseries. But Plantvine did a great job with packaging and shipping. Highly recommend!

Impressive plant

Beautiful greenery to add to our apartment with lots of direct and indirect light. Also, a little extra O2 is excellent for the brain!

I wanted to have a plant that can survive East facing rooms but yet tropical looking.

I have always wanted one of these plants! My uncle has one that is on his banister that is about 10 feet long and almost touches the floor a full story down

Always wanted a bigger one for my living room

I've been looking for a plant like this for so long, I finally decided to just buy one over the internet. After reviewing reviews 1star reviews from Home Depot, and Lowes I found that this website was highly rated and that a lot of customer love this site.

One of the most beautiful plants, in my opinion! My first one, and I'm so excited!

Why does the medium size not have the “Swiss cheese” look to it like the size large? Are they different?

Hi Katie! Younger Monstera’s do not split that early, however they will split as the leaves grow and mature 🙂
