Monsteras are often called Swiss cheese plants or vines for their leaves’ lacy holes and notches, and adansonii is arguably the cheesiest of them all.

  • Its leaves are more perforated and delicate than deliciosa‘s and the plant is petite in comparison.
  • And though all Monsteras are considered vines, adansonii has a trailing quality that makes it a good pick for hanging baskets or training around a room.
  • This variegated version of this Monstera is popular for its lovely dual tone foliage.
LIGHT
  • Put the plant near a window where it will receive bright, but indirect, sunlight.
  • It tolerates low light, but grows faster and becomes more dramatic in a bright spot.
  • That said, avoid strong, direct sunlight because it may burn the leaves.
WATER
  • When its soil becomes dry to a depth of 1-2”, water your monstera directly into the pot so not to moisten foliage and just enough to keep the soil from completely drying out.
  • Monstera is somewhat drought tolerant, so you don’t need to worry about keeping up with the watering all the time.
  • Don’t allow the pot to stand in water, as this will cause root rot.
SOIL
  • Plant it in a pot with drainage holes using a standard potting soil that contains peat.
  • Peat helps to trap moisture without becoming waterlogged.
FERTILIZER
  • For best results, feed your plant once a month throughout the spring and summer.
  • A little bit of food will go a long way to encourage growth and root health.
  • No fertilizer is necessary during the winter—it’s important to give your Monstera a chance to rest during the cooler time of year.
