Monstera deliciosa, aka Swiss Cheese Plant or Split Leaf Philodendron, is a very ornamental perennial fruiting vine native to tropical Mexico and Central America. It can be grown both indoors and outdoor and regarded as a highly sought after exotic houseplant. Monstera produces large white showy flowers that yield an amazing tropical fruit. Monstera fruit tastes like a combination of mango, banana, and pineapple. The plant is fast-growing and requires very little maintenance.
It’s name comes from the latin word for "abnormal", because of it's odd, perforated leaves, often punctured through with holes. This is known as leaf fenestration. Hardy and beautiful, the Monstera vine has large glossy splitting leaves that can reach an incredible 2-4 ft size themselves. Growers marvel as the impressive new leaf growth unfurls over 1-2 days. Grown outdoors in the shade, the Monstera plant will thrive for many years climbing up large oak trees.
