Monstera Deliciosa is an absolute classic houseplant, loved by all plant aficionados due to its easy care and distinctive split-leaf fenestrations. It was once commonly called the Fruit Salad Plant, because of the large seasonal edible fruit (that is apparently delicious, pun intended).

The Monstera has a leaf that can grow up to 18 inches wide and can reach a height of between 10 and 15 feet in ideal conditions. Not to be confused with a Swiss Cheese plant, this beauty is the original real deal!

Humidity and Temperature Requirements

Monstera isn’t as easily impacted by humidity stress (lack of humidity) as some of the other aroids but isn't immune. Humidity stress can be seen as crisp, brown leaf edges. You can help alleviate this stress with a humidifier but the easier options are to open a window more regularly and group other plants together to create a micro environment.

Light Requirements

The Deliciosa variety comes from the wet forests of Mexico, so they thrive in a warm and well-lit position with lots of bright, indirect light. Keep them away from frost, drafts and heating/cooling units as they don't like temperature fluctuations.

Soil Requirements

The best potting soil for is a well-draining and porous soil mix. Supplement soil nutrition with liquid fertiliser fortnightly over the warm, growing period (spring-autumn) but not during the cooler winter months. Seaweed solutions and organic matter are good options.
