The Real Monstera, Not the Fake
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

This is a beautiful, very healthy looking plant and is growing so fast!
It came just as promised. I can't wait to see how it grows.
Healthy and growing well
I ordered two monstera for a room with low light (indirect). Both plants arrived with healthy root systems and were about 1 foot tall. Plants have since shot up about 8 inches with healthy new leaves. Would recommend.
Plant arrived with a healthy group of Leaves. If you buy it young it takes a while before it Swiss cheeses.
For over $80 including shipping, I received a 1ft tall monstera plant. You can buy this size for MUCH cheaper on many other websites. I usually buy all my plants from here and I’ve been super happy with all of them, but this case feels like a rip off. I wish I knew the height of the plant before purchasing as it doesn’t say it anywhere (and the photo of a 4-5ft tree is very misleading...)
We're sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your plant! We base our gallon sizes on the size of the root ball and do not list the heights, but guarantee that the root ball will have met proper maturity for the size of the pot. We'll reach out to you and see what we can do to make this right!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Your Monstera will grow best in full sun with high humidity and moist, well-drained soil but will tolerate some shade. 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.
