Monstera Adansonii 4 inch pot
-How to Grow Monstera Adansonii
The Swiss cheese vine is a tropical ornamental that has aerial roots growing downwards from the stem. These roots easily reach the ground, giving this plant a vine-like tendency. These climbers have striking, perforated deeply green leaves that will make you the envy of any plant collector worth their sphagnum peat.
Monster adansonii are native to the jungles of Central and South America, so they grow in the wild under the coverage of trees. Therefore, the plants grow best in indirect sunlight. If it’s in a spot with direct light, limit it to just 2 to 3 hours of morning sun.
This plant grows best in peat-based potting soil that has a large drainage hole. The peat helps to trap moisture in the soil without allowing it to become waterlogged. For strong growth, aim for a soil pH of 5.5 to 7.0.
Before you water a Swiss cheese vine, do the knuckle test—stick your finger up to the knuckle into the soil to see how wet or dry the soil is. If the soil is nearly dry, water it. Don’t let the soil dry out entirely.
-Temperature and Humidity
M. adansonii is best grown in a conservatory or greenhouse where humidity, temperature, and light are all maximized. These are deep-jungle plants that thrive on very high humidity, lots of moisture during the rainy season, and high temps. Adult plants are also climbers, so they can be aggressive if grown correctly. The closer you can mimic the plant's natural conditions the better—choose well-lit, warm and humid bathrooms or kitchens or mist plants frequently. You could also place a humidifier near the plant to keep the air moist. Keep above 60 degrees Fahrenheit if possible, but it can survive brief cold spells with some die-back. Move the plants outside in the summer.
