Monkey Face Monstera | Swiss Cheese Plant | Monstera Adansonii
Native to South America, the monstera (or Swiss Cheese Plant) is one of the most iconic houseplants around. Gloria is the cheeky younger sibling to the traditional cheese plant with her uniquley placed leaf holes giving her the nickname 'Monkey Mask Monstera'.
Used to clambering up the tallest trees, this beauty will grow and trail down or you can train her to climb a moss pole. Monsteras grow aerial roots to help them draw nutirents as they grow so it's good to give her something to grab onto.
Monstera plants make a fantastic gift and are easy to care for. I will provide a beautiful care card for your plant so you can refer back if you have any questions. Your plant will arrive in a 14cm standard plant pot, or you can add on a beautiful pot, the perfect size for your new plant. I recommend a 17cm pot.
As with all our houseplants, Gloria is named after an inspiring woman. This time, Gloria Steinem - a journalist and political activist, helping to lead the modern feminist movement in the US.
RETURN & REFUND POLICY
This plant loves a bit of bright sunshine but not too much direct sunlight - think of their natural home, some light coming though the treetop canopy but mostly pretty shaded by the treetops. Mine loves life with a bit of early morning sun and a shadier afternoon.
Take care not to overwater and check that the soil has dried out before watering. Her leaves will usually droop a little when she's thirsty so you'll know when she needs a drink.
Monsteras aren't great for cats as they can cause irritation if eaten so you'll need to keep it out of the way of your fluffy feline!
