This majestic being is our of my favourite plants, the mighty Monstera Deliciosa, also known as the Swiss Cheese Plant.

Monsteras love being in sunny room, but always want to chill in the shade. They love to climb so will always grow towards the light.

It’s leaves are supreme, so every 2 weeks, give them a little wipe to knock off the dust and spray them with a bit of water. Give your Monstera a water once a week, with some of our indoor plant food, to keep it happy & healthy.

Oh and the sap inside Monstera leaves is toxic, so keep it away from hungry dogs & cats!
