Monstera deliciosa, also known as the "Swiss Cheese Plant," is a popular houseplant loved for its unique foliage and tropical vibe.
Native to the rainforests of Central and South America, Monstera deliciosa was first discovered by Swiss botanist Heinrich Wilhelm Schott in the mid-1800s. The plant can grow up to 70 feet tall in its natural habitat, but it typically reaches around 6-8 feet in height as a houseplant. The plant features large, glossy green leaves perforated with large, irregular holes and notches, giving it a distinctive appearance. Monstera deliciosa is an easy-to-care-for plant that thrives in bright, indirect light and warm, humid conditions. It prefers well-draining soil and regular watering, but it can also tolerate some periods of drought. The plant is also known for its air-purifying properties, making it a great addition to any indoor space.
Monstera deliciosa became popular as a houseplant in the 1970s and 1980s thanks to its distinctive appearance and ease of care. Its large, sculptural leaves and unique silhouette made it a staple of modern interior design, and it was frequently featured in home decor magazines and on television. Its popularity has endured and remains a favourite among plant enthusiasts today.
In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Monstera deliciosa is also valued for its edible fruit, which tastes like a combination of pineapple and banana. The fruit takes several years to mature on the plant and is not commonly produced in indoor settings. However, the plant's unique foliage alone is enough to make it a highly sought-after houseplant.
