Native to the rainforests of Central America, the big, bold Monstera deliciosa plant is also known as a split-leaf philodendron or Swiss Cheese plant. They are famous for their natural leaf-holes. The Monstera's leaf-holes are called fenestrations and are theorized to maximize sun fleck capture on the forest floor by increasing the spread of the leaf while decreasing the mass of leaf cells to support. I find them easy to grow, hardy, very beautiful and a staple plant for plant lovers. 

LIGHT
Thrives in bright to medium indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun but can be acclimated to withstand it.

WATER
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Pro tip: Monsteras can benefit from filtered water or water left out overnight before using.

HUMIDITY
Normal room humidity will do, but prefers humid conditions if possible. Consider incorporating a fine-mist mister or humidifier to boost humidity level indoors. Wipe leaves with a damp cloth when needed.
