monstera leaves

This plant is big, bold, and beautiful. Smooth, heart-shaped leaves naturally develop holes, and split along lateral veins as they mature, resulting in the nickname ‘swiss cheese plants’. The unusual leaves perch on long, upright stalks, and a mature plant can grow to be over 3 metres tall. Monstera gives an exuberant jungle vibe to your home or office.

 how this nature nurtures you 

Monsteras are talented air purifiers, removing toxins and airborne allergens from your indoor environment.

They are symbols of longevity and respect, and exude a calming presence. Unique and slightly peculiar, they remind us to celebrate the beauty of imperfection.

Drench thoroughly, then let the top 5 centimeters dry out before rewatering.


They tolerate low light, but prefer bright, indirect light. An east-facing window is ideal. Rotate weekly for even growth.


16-30 degrees Celsius


Moderate – spray occasionally with water or put a pebble tray under it to generate a more humid environment. 


Mildly toxic to humans and animals if consumed.


Feed every month in the spring and summer with an all purpose fertilizer.  Apply to damp soil so you don't burn the roots.  


Easily propagated from stem cuttings. Leaves are a beautiful addition to floral arrangements.
