Monstera Obliqua

Monstera Obliqua


Don't miss out on the plant of the next season - Monstera Obliqua. We are currently growing this rare specimen, and is now available.

The Monstera obliqua (mon-STER-uh)(oh-BLIK-wuh) is one of 50 known species in the Monstera genus, native to the tropical jungles of the Americas. The obliqua is commonly known as the "Swiss Cheese Plant," due to vast amount of small holes that perforate each heart-shaped leaf. The holes in the leaves are naturally occurring; they allow sunlight to shine through to lower leaves as well as allowing harsh winds to pass through without tearing the plant.Flourishes with little care and grows fast and steady, vining up to 30 feet.  

This plant does best in a bright, indirect light (such as a north-facing window.)  Direct sunlight may harm your plant.  Keep soil moist; water every 1-2 weeks.

You will be receiving a Monstera obliqua in a 12cm, plastic pot. As the plant grows, you may choose to stake the vine for upward growth or allow the vine to naturally trail.  Please note, this is a living plant therefore some variations may occur in colour and shape from the image shown. 

Please note: all orders have a 14 working day delivery time.
