Monstera adansonii, also known as the Swiss cheese vine, is a tropical plant that originates from Central and South America. It can be found growing in rainforests and jungles, where it climbs up trees and other vegetation.
The lace leaf form of Monstera adansonii is characterized by its delicate, lacy leaves that have numerous holes and perforations. The leaves are heart-shaped and have a glossy, dark green color that contrasts beautifully with the white veins that run throughout them.
While Monstera adansonii does produce flowers, they are not typically seen when the plant is grown indoors. Instead, it is the foliage that makes this plant a popular choice among plant lovers.
When caring for Monstera adansonii, it is important to provide it with bright, indirect light and to water it when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch. The plant prefers well-draining soil and does well when grown in a pot with drainage holes.
Monstera adansonii has a trailing habit and can be trained to climb up a support, making it a great choice for hanging baskets or growing on a trellis. It is a relatively low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of tropical elegance to any space.
