Why Monstera Plants?
A house plant that's second to none: Heart-shaped, glossy leaves lend a full look to Monstera deliciosa, also known as the Swiss Cheese Plant. The leaves on the plant’s full, robust silhouette develop natural holes, too – resembling the holes in Swiss cheese – for a unique touch that’s perfect for year-round display.
And though the trademark, Swiss cheese-like holes on the leaves develop after one to two years of growth, this plant's eye-catching green hue is there from day one.

Customer Reviews & Photos
I purchased the twin 3 gallon pots. Arrived quickly and in beautiful shape. I love them.
Initially I was disappointed in the packaging. 2 or 3 medium size leaves were damaged and I had to remove. It’s been 3 months and it is doing very well. Two big beautiful leaves have opened up. Already grew a couple inches. Will order more plants from them.
Bounced back quickly
This arrived with the pot crushed and the plant Disturbed. Many leaves were folded and damaged from shipping. It has been about 3 weeks since and it has already produced 6 new leaves. I trimmed off any that looked bad as the new ones were competing for space. Now it looks perfect and is support happy in our North Bay window.
Came looking a bit decrepit, but within 2 weeks have sprung into beautiful indoor plants. Highly recommend them!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Your Monstera will grow best in a bright spot with high humidity and moist, well-drained soil. But it will tolerate some low light and direct sunlight on its leaves since it grows indoors. The best place for your Swiss Cheese Plant is near a South-facing window. When you're ready to plant, ensure you select a pot that is approximately 12 to 14 inches in diameter, with proper drainage holes.
FGT Tip: You can place your pot on top of a base with stones to prevent spills and allow for easy moisture containment.
2. Watering: Spritz Monstera leaves with water in the dry winter months or throughout the year if you live in a dry climate, especially since it loves humidity. We also recommend watering your Swiss Cheese Plant once a week – water when the soil is dry at about 2 inches deep, and water until you see flow from the drainage holes.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Monstera Plant with a water-soluble fertilizer once in the spring and every month in the summer.
FGT Tip: The leaves of your Monstera may collect dust, so be sure to keep your tree healthy by wiping down the leaves as needed with a dust cloth.
