Monstera deliciosa, also known as the Swiss cheese plant, is a highly desirable and reliable house plant that is easy to care for. Just give it medium light levels and moderate amounts of water and it will gradually grow, being restrained only by the size of its pot. As it grows, the leaves become larger and mature leaves can be huge. Foliage on a young plant is 'un-split'. These plants help filter the air within a home or office. They take out toxins and give out oxygen. Great health-giving properties, and beautiful too!
