The Swiss cheese plant has beautiful heart-shaped leaves, that split as the plant ages. These characteristic incisions have made the Monstera one of the most popular plants today! This large plant not only good-looking, but also quite useful thanks to its strong air-purifying effects. It produces extra oxygen and breaks down harmful substances, creating a healthier living environment. And the plant hardly asks for anything in return. The Monstera is very easy to maintain. It’s the perfect plant if you haven’t got a green thumb or when you’re in need of an office plant, for instance.
Did you know that the Monstera pertusum can transform into an epiphyte – also known as an airplant? That’s because the Swiss cheese plant has aerial roots. These are brown strands that appear on the plant over time, which they use to attach to trees or rocks. It tends to grow to such high places to get more sunlight. The aerial roots also allow the plant to receive more nutrients from his environment (oxygen, rain water). It can even get as much nutrition through these roots, that the ground roots are no longer necessary. At this point, the Swiss cheese plant becomes an epiphyte, and can climb up to 65 feet high! As an indoor plant, this Monstera will naturally not start climbing all around the living room. However, the aerial roots are still quite useful indoors. You can improve the plant’s growth by steering its aerial roots to the potting soil. This allows the plant access to more nutrients, and you’ll notice it will start to form new leaves faster than usual.
