Small Monstera Adansonii Obliqua Adasonii Table Top Plant in 6” Pot
Easy to grow houseplant whose leaves resemble the skin of a watermelon.
The less often seen “other Swiss Cheese Plant”, Monstera adansonii (aka Monstera friedrichsthalii) has an unmistakably bizarre leaf form. Natural holes appear almost immediately- the leaves are on average about 5-6″ long, but will get considerably larger on mature plants allowed to climb.
This plant has a fast moving vining habit- it prefers bright light / part sun, humidity and rich organic soil. Plant it against something it can climb on and watch it get big. Creates a very exotic jungle look.
Monstera obliqua is an easy-to-grow houseplant with show-stopper foliage. Each bright green leaf is full of natural oval-shaped holes that earn the plant its nickname, “Swiss Cheese Plant.” Botanists believe that the holes in its leaves help the plant to stand up to high winds and allow light to pass through to lower parts of the plant in its natural environment. Kept as a houseplant, Monstera obliqua will happily climb up a trellis or vine down the sides of its pot. Similar in growth habit to its botanical cousin, the philodendron, Swiss Cheese Plant’s vines can eventually grow quite long.
Monstera obliqua makes a perfect houseplant for both beginners and experts, since it’s easy to care for and exotic in appearance. Place it where the plant will receive medium-bright indirect, shield from direct sun and water regularly, and the Swiss Cheese Plant will reward you by rapidly growing its beautiful foliage.
Can also be grown as a houseplant in a pot or hanging basket. Very cool!
