Key Benefits of Swiss Cheese Plant
One great thing about the Swiss Cheese Plant is that it is fast-growing. Look after it well and it will reward you with new, jungly leaves pretty often!
Swiss Cheese Plants are also great for beginners looking to start their first plant collection. It’s low-maintenance and is guaranteed to make a grand impression on your guests.
The large, dramatic leaves are also really good at trapping dust and dirt, keeping them out of the air and away from your surfaces.
The Swiss Cheese Plant Story
The Swiss Cheese Plant is known scientifically as Monstera deliciosa, which literally means ‘delicious monster’. While Monstera is said to refer to the plant’s large, dramatic leaves, deliciosa is said to be a reference to the edible fruit that it produces in the wild.
However, it is more commonly known as the Swiss Cheese Plant thanks to the holes in the leaves that resemble the famous cheese from Switzerland.
Where Is It From?
The Swiss Cheese Plant hails from the tropical rainforests of Central and South America.
