monstera pertusum 125

Monstera pertusum is a form of Swiss cheese plant that grows naturally in Mexico. It is also known as Philodendron pertusum and is commonly called the Mexican breadfruit or the window leaf.

This one has a moss stick and the plant measures around 125cm tall.

Cheese plants like humid conditions: the more humid the environment is, the bigger its leaves become. It can, however, tolerate dry air.

The leaves of a young plant do not have the characteristic holes and cuts, these gradually form as the plant matures. Lack of light can sometimes prevent the formations of the iconic holes. Cheese plants are, naturally, climbing plants that lean against other plants. They form aerial rooms along the stem to help them grip and this gives them strength. Roots that appear along the stem may be cut, but the plant will require some sort of support.

  • Keep out of direct sunlight.
  • Avoid draughts.
  • Keep the soil very slightly moist but don't overwater as this can rot the roots.
