Philodendron Swiss Cheese (Monstera Adansonii)
Plant Care Instructions*
Temperatures between 65-80ºF (18-27ºC) are ideal. Lower than 65ºF (18Cº) will slow down this plants growth and below 50ºF (10ºC) will stop growth.
A fairly bright room or bright with plenty of shade is best. Direct sunlight will damage the leaves and not enough light can slow growth down.
Between watering times allow the soil to become dry to the touch within the top couple of inches or so of soil.
A peat based potting soil mix with perlite or sand is ideal. Soil that drains well is needed.
There is different advice from various sources about feeding (none wrong), but I would suggest fertilizing once a month with a diluted solution.
Re-pot once every two years approximately, during Spring.
Average to high room humidity is needed, so you will need to increase the humidity of a normal room. Misting the leaves with plain water is helpful.
* Standard care recommendations - you may need to adjust based on your home or office environment.
