The Real Monstera, Not the Fake
Why Monstera Plants?
Heart-shaped, glossy leaves lend a full look to Monstera deliciosa, also known as the Swiss Cheese Plant. The leaves on the plant’s vibrant, robust silhouette develop natural holes, hence its nickname, for a unique, signature touch that sets Monstera apart from other indoor varieties.
The Monstera is native to tropical rainforests, where its iconic foliage allows the sun to reach the forest floor. Now, you get the exotic look of the tropics in your homescape with your Monstera, which is sized perfectly for the indoors yet still offers vivid color and volume.
And it’s adaptable to indoor conditions, thriving in bright, indirect light or fluorescent lighting. This, plus the fact that it’s tolerant to missed waterings, means it’s ideal for any grower, from novices and frequent travelers to seasoned plant experts.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Usually, Swiss Cheese Plants develop their natural holes after one or two years of growth. But when you order from our nursery, you get a fully-developed look, with broad leaves and the signature holes that make Monstera one-of-a-kind. That’s because we've planted and nurtured your Monstera for several months before shipping to ensure you get a healthier look and huge results instantly. Now, your Monstera arrives at your door with an impressive, commanding presence indicative of its tropical origins.
Other nurseries sell Monsteras that aren’t even bred to have the characteristic holes that have put this plant in such high demand. In fact, many sell a relative of the Monstera, the philodendron – when you get your Monstera from Fast Growing Trees, you get the real Monstera…not the philodendron!
We’ve nurtured your Swiss Cheese Plant to perfection, so once it's shipped, the only work for you is finding the perfect location. But don’t wait…these mature Monsteras go fast. Get the exotic beauty of the popular Monstera today!
Customer Reviews & Photos
It look fabulous in my living room!
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.
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 it 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.
