Monstera Deliciosa - (Swiss Cheese Plant, Mexican Breadfruit, Windowleaf, Split Leaf Philodendron) is a climbing tropical evergreen perennial vine in the Araceae family, native to Central America. They are toxic to fuzzy pets, but reptile safe in small amounts. All parts of the Monstera are toxic to humans except the fully ripened fruits. DO NOT EAT your monstera fruits if you do not know what you are doing.

Monstera produce large green leaves, growing up to two feet long or more, and will develop fenestrations (holes) in the leaves as they age. Mature Monstera bloom when you mimic their natural habitat with a white and yellow flower spike that grows to be up to 6 inches tall. Flower spikes will develop into fruits that are up to 10 inches long. Great plant for outdoor decoprations in the proper zone and can grow indoors to fill corners. When trellised or staked, plants will climb up to 70 feet high, but can be pruned to keep them a manageable size and cuttings with a node will root for propagation.

Plants will arrive in a 2 inch plastic nursery pot for safe travel, and will need to be repotted upon arrival in a 4” pot with any standard potting soil. Plants like to be somewhat rootbound, and should only go up one pot size at a time when they begin to outgrow their pots.

Species likes to be in hot, humid temperatures but will be happy in warm areas outdoors. Plants should come in when temps get into the high forties and the plants leaves will freeze and be damaged or killed below 32 degrees F. Cold hardy outdoors year round in Zones 10 - 12, in bright shade. Normal room temperature inside is ideal. Plants prefer bright indirect light and will not do care for direct sun. Easy to grow, these plants are semi-drought tolerant. Allow the top two inches of soil to dry out between waterings. Plants get very dramatic when under watered but will perk back up if watered in time. Fertilize monthly with a liquid, balanced (16-16-16- to 20-20-20 strength) fertilizer during the growing season from Spring to Fall. Mist or place on a tray of rocks or pebbles to increase humidity. Message us for a link to our care guide for more detailed instructions.

Unboxing Instructions: When plant arrives, pot will be in a bag or wrapped to reduce soil loss. remove paper and packaging materials and cut out of bag or wrapping and water thoroughly. Repot in a peat based, standard potting soil.


Winter Shipping

96 hour HEAT PACKS are available under the Accessories category. Due to the colder weather and the postal delays from Covid-19 and the increased number of packages during the holidays, we are only offering the larger, 96 hour heat pack and are upgrading all orders with a heat pack to Priority to hopefully ensure that the heat pack is still working upon arrival.

If the daytime temperature in your area or mine is below 45 degrees, we recommend a heat pack. If your area is going to be extremely cold, then you may need two heat packs. If you do not want to include heat packs during cold weather, then you take full responsibility if your plant freezes. We may check the weather between South Carolina and your location, and send a message to recommend adding a heat pack. We do not leave our plants outside for the post office to pick them up and instead take the plants to the post office before the postal truck comes at 4pm so that they are not sitting outside in the elements. We want to provide you with the highest quality plants possible and between our cost and the extra added cost of shipping, there is no mark up on heat packs and they are simply provided as a service to ensure your plants arrive safely.


They last at least 96 hours. Due to mail delays, we are only offering the 96 hour heat pack at this time. For an additional $7 charge, we are offering a shipping upgrade to priority shipping with an included heat pack. We cannot be responsible for plants that were damaged by extreme cold where a heat pack was not purchased, so please check your weather and take postal delays into consideration.
