The Swiss Cheese Plant, sometimes known as a split-leaf philodendron is not actually a philodendron but a tough epiphytic vine that, when happy climbs like Jack on his beanstalk. The broad leaves split and have comedy cheese like holes appear as the plant matures. The 'Deliciosa' translates to 'delicious' referring to the edible fruit. The Genus, 'Monstera' is named from the Latin word meaning Monstrous.

Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Swiss Cheese Plant Care Guide

Encourage your Monstera to grow up a moss or coir pole to give them the stability and anchoring they have in the jungle. A bright, indirectly lit spot is ideal. They like a good drink but allow them to dry out fully between waterings. Ideal temperatures range from about 15°C up to 30°C, away from any cold draughts.

Learn More About Swiss Cheese Plant

Collapsible content

What is the Swiss Cheese Plant Known For?

The Swiss Cheese Plant is renowned for its large, glossy green leaves with distinctive holes, resembling a slice of Swiss cheese. It's a popular choice for both beginner and experienced plant enthusiasts, adding a tropical flair to any indoor space.

What Is the History of the Swiss Cheese Plant?

Originating in the rainforests of Central and South America, the Swiss Cheese Plant has a history spanning centuries. It was traditionally used for various purposes by indigenous people, but gained widespread popularity in the mid-20th century as an ornamental houseplant. Its striking appearance has made it a fashionable choice for homes and offices alike.

Where Does the Swiss Cheese Plant Originate?

Swiss Cheese Plants are native to the tropical rainforests of Central and South America. They thrive in warm, humid conditions, which is why they adapt so well to indoor environments when provided with adequate care.

How Do You Care for a Swiss Cheese Plant?

Taking care of a Swiss Cheese Plant involves regular watering, but not so much that the soil becomes soggy. They flourish in indirect sunlight and will need their leaves dusted occasionally to ensure optimal absorption of light. During the growing season, a balanced liquid fertiliser can be applied once a month to promote growth.

Are Swiss Cheese Plant Toxic to Pets?

Yes, the Swiss Cheese Plant is considered toxic to pets, particularly dogs and cats. Ingesting parts of this plant can lead to symptoms like oral irritation, excessive drooling, and vomiting. If you have pets, it's recommended to place the plant in an area where they cannot access it.

    Terrible delivery partner

    Less to do with the plants and more concern with the delivery service. I've taken two full days to sit at home and wait because they keep pushing it back at the end of the day the delivery is due. No customer service from delivery service whatsoever. Spent over 100 pounds just to feel like i'm waiting around with no direction. Houseplant may not be directly responsible for the shipping company but as the company they've chosen to work with affects their user experience, I think they can do better.

    Changed my mind about buying plants online

    My cheese plant, prayer plant and Ivy arrived early and were in perfect condition. I’ve never ordered live plants online before and Houseplant delivered healthier, happier plants than any nursery bought plants I’ve spent money on in the past. Thanks for proving me wrong about buying plants online, I’m ordering again. Although, I’d love to see some more stylish pots available and deals for buying the pots with the plants. Kindly, Val

The plants arrived in good condition as though they had been watered a few days before so when they arrived the soil was damp but not dripping everywhere.

They were good value for money and I will be buying plants from this company again.

    Chose a big plant for my daughter's birthday to replace one she had lost (guest's overwatering!) and she's thrilled. Very swift delivery thanks to the initiative of the driver and an obliging neighbour. In a hurry so maybe I didn't see an option to include a message nor a pot that would fit. No matter because she didn't need either but would be nice to see such options in the future.

    The plant arrived quickly, but was much smaller than anticipated. It only had 3 leaves and 2 of them are bent in two. I'm hoping that they will open. It's also slanting quite heavily to one side, which will only get worse. Very disappointed.
