Swiss cheese plant is a species of flowering plant native to tropical forests of southern Mexico. It is also calledMonstera Deliciosa. It’s a woody vine with huge, glossy, dark green leaves that grows in the tropics of North and South America, where it can reach 70 feet tall. A fairly bright room or bright with plenty of shade is best. Direct sunlight will damage the leaves and not enough light can slow growth down. Watering: Between watering times allow the soil to become dry to the touch within the top couple of inches or so of soil. Like most plants, the Swiss Cheese Plant is susceptible to root rot, so avoid letting the plant sit in water or having its soil become saturated with water.
