Monstera Deliciosa Plant
It goes without saying that Monstera Deliciosa's are one of the most popular house plants on the market at the moment! Also commonly known as the fruit salad plant, the architectural qualities of this beauty will bring any space to life.
The large, leathery, heart-shaped leaves get better with age as they reach the size of dinner-plates and the uniquely shaped holes start to make an appearance.
Monstera Deliciosa's have a tolerance for a variety of conditions, making them very hard to kill. However, if you really want your Monstera to thrive, you'd be best to place her in a well-lit room but avoid direct sunlight, as this may burn the leaves. Ouch!
Be careful not to kill this one with kindness - they do not need to be consistently watered! To avoid over-watering, you can check if the top of the soil has dried up before replenishing.
Did we mention that Monstera's originate from the heat of South America? So yes, you can mist this one to help replicate a 'humid' environment. In fact, we think that would be greatly appreciated!
Our Monsteras range between 60-80cm in height and come gift wrapped in a 22cm pot. They can grow up to 2.5 metres high!
CAUTION: Toxic if ingested, so keep away from animals and small children.
We're sorry to our out-of-town friends, but delivery for this plant is only available within the Christchurch area. We wouldn't want to risk her getting damaged while in transit!
Living locally? Feel free to pick out your own Monstera from our retail store in Halswell!
