Monstera deliciosa in 12" Nursery Pot
The Monstera Deliciosa plant is also known as the Swiss Cheese Plant because as it ages, it develops unique holes and splits (called fenestration) in its large heart-shaped leaves, making them resemble swiss cheese. These notches occur as a healthy preventative measure against the heavy rain and wind so common to its natural habitat. A tropical plant native to the Mexican rainforest, the Monstera Deliciosa quickly grows lush and glossy. Under ideal conditions, it can bloom white flowers and sprout edible fruit.
