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.

* Please note that our younger medium monsteras may only have leaves that are completely solid and have no slits or holes. As your plant baby grows the older and newer leaves will start to split and display fenestrations (holes) on the leaves. Large and Extra Large plants will display splitting in leaves.

    I’ve been eyeing Plantvine for a while and finally pulled the trigger for the XL monstera sale. I didn’t think it was possible, but this nursery made it happen! The packaging was impeccable, and the plant is HUGE. For the price I paid, they exceeded my expectations. I also love that they keep you updated along the way and even sent a photo of your plant before shipping it — I don’t know any other nurseries who do this. If you’ve been waiting to buy from them, do it. You can tell they care about their customers and absolutely take great care of their plants.

    Got my plant a little over a week since it shipped, and one of the leaves was ripped off! It was healed over, so it looked like it happened before shipping. Kinda sad, but overall the plant is still beautiful.

is this plant pet friendly?

Hi Rebecca,

The Monstera is not pet friendly.

I am a first time plant owner. Can I just place the black grower pot into a regular planter? Or do I need to replant it and need soil etc.?

1 year 2 months ago

Hi! Yes, it is up to preference! Some customers like to simply just put the plastic nursery pot in a decorative pot and take out when it is time to water or you can just repot it. It is up to you! The most important thing is to ensure that repot into a pot that has proper drainage!
