Monstera deliciosa is a climbing plant that is native to the tropical rainforests between southern Mexico and Panama. Well-known as the swiss cheese plant, the Monstera deliciosa is famous for its distinctive natural leaf holes. These holes (correct term fenestration) are thought to increase sun rays capture on the lower levels for the plant. Younger specimens have no holes to begin with, but don’t worry as plant matures it starts to produce new leaves that do unfurl showing the desired holes.
Monstera deliciosa brings an eye-catching and exotic appeal wherever it finds. The heart-shaped, glossy green leaves increase in size as the plant grows reaching widths up to 40cm and over.
