Monstera adansonii, is the narrow-leaf and slightly more compact version of the Swiss Cheese Vine. It's an easy-to-grow houseplant with show-stopper foliage. Each leaf is full of natural oval-shaped holes called fenestration that earn the plant its nickname.
Botanists believe that the holes in its leaves help the plant to stand up to high winds and allow light to pass through to lower parts of the plant in its natural environment.
Swiss Cheese Vine loves to climb, and when provided a moss pole, will reward you with larger leaves. Alternately, this vine makes a lovely hanging plant as without support, the vines will cascade down the sides of the pot.
This plant comes potted in a terracotta pot with a saucer.
