Monstera deliciosa, more commonly known as the Swiss cheese plant, is the coolest plant on the block at the moment. Its huge, exotic-looking glossy green leaves, each deeply cut and peppered with holes, are leading the houseplant revolution currently greening up our living rooms. If you want to start growing houseplants, this stylish beauty should be top of your list.
Give your Monstera a bright spot out of direct sunlight, and keep it damp. Never cut off the aerial roots –instead, poke them gently into the moss-covered supporting pole. Wash leaves regularly to and mist with tepid water to keep your plant happy.
