Water & Light Plant Shop's Swiss Cheese (Philodendron Monstera Adansonii) plant, produces tiny little wheels of cheese every few days. Ships free.

Philodendron Monstera Adansonii (Swiss Cheese Plant) is a tropical plant native to Central and South America and the West Indies. A close cousin to the famous monstera deliciosa, the adansonii is the real swiss cheese plant, aptly named for its leaves full of holes.

Our monstera adansonii plant has been grown by a husband and wife team in South Florida that has specialized in hoyas and climbing totems since the company started.  Known for the quality of their materials and propagation techniques, the company aims to create some of the market's best hanging and climbing foliage. Truly a pleasure to work with, the owners have always gone out of their way to partner with us and bring their products to you!

  • Recommend transplanting within 1-2 years into a vessel 1-2 inches larger using regular potting mix.
  • Clean leaves with damp paper towel every 1-2 weeks to aid photosynthesis and stimulate growth. Check leaves and stalks for pests while cleaning. For more information on the importance of cleaning leaves, read our guide here.
  • If pests are found, remove with damp paper towel and use a mild organic pesticide in a spray bottle to coat the affected areas. More information on common pest problems can be found here.
  • Toxic to pets, contact veterinarian immediately if ingested.
  • Water thoroughly once every 7 days and allow excess water to run out the drainage holes in the nursery pot or whichever vessel you transplant into. If your pot has no drainage holes, we recommend adding clay drainage balls to the bottom of the pot, however avoid overwatering. You can read some fundamental rules of watering here.
  • Medium to high indirect light, avoid windows as they amplify the sun's intensity and create heat that may damage plant. You can find our plant placement guidelines here.

For an overview on how we ship plants to you, see our guide hereAll items are shipped from Florida on Mondays or Tuesdays to allow for maximum continuous transit time while avoiding time spent sitting in warehouses, trucks, or other distribution points over the weekend. Depending on your location and the weather conditions across the country, we may be forced to hold on shipping until conditions improve as we have had items freeze while sitting in Chicago for four days and get delayed due to heavy holiday volume (Mother's Day, Christmas, etc.).  We will make every attempt to ship your item promptly on the very next Monday or Tuesday given that there are no anomalies in shipping conditions.

Items received in a damaged condition will be refunded immediately as we investigate the cause of the issue with the shipper.  Returns will not be accepted, please dispose of any unusable items after they have been refunded.
