Transform your home into a lush green jungle that's easy to care for. Learn how to grow the low-maintenance monstera deliciosa plant with these simple tips

Meet Monstera Deliciosa Hailing from the rainforests of  Central and South America, the Monstera deliciosa, also known as the  Swiss cheese plant, is a climbing vine that can reach impressive heights. 

Its signature split leaves, some with fenestrations (holes),  are adaptations for maximizing sunlight penetration in the dense rainforest canopy.

Monstera plants are GREAT indoor plants to grow because they are  fuss-free and look gorgeous! A tropical rainforest native this gorgeous leafy plant loves humidity and warmth.

Light Monsteras crave bright, indirect sunlight. Think about their growing  conditions in the rainforest with dappled sunlight filtering through a  canopy of trees. Granted, we can’t over rainforest conditions, but  east-facing windows are ideal.

Monstera Watering Tips Finding the perfect watering balance is key to monstero plant  happiness. Aim to keep the soil evenly moist, but never soggy. Allow the  top inch of soil to dry slightly between waterings.

Fertilization Feed your Monstera plant with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) to encourage lush foliage. A diluted liquid fertilizer applied monthly or a slow-release fertilizer applied every few months is ideal.
