Large Cheese Plant
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
This cheese plant (monstera delicosa) is a very easy-going house plant.
All plants need light, but this cheese plant will thrive even in quite low light - most rooms in the house will be suitable. It is happy at a normal room temperature, and if gets really hot in the summer you can mist it with ordinary tap water to cool it down.
In the spring and summer when the plant is growing it will need to be watered often, but in the winter when the plant is resting watering is not so important. You might like to feed it every month with ordinary houseplant food to help it grow and to keep the leaves nice and fresh.
As the plant grows it can be repotted in a larger pot. Choose rich compost that will hold water well. In the right spot your cheese plant could get to six foot in a couple of years. To restrict growth however, keep slightly cooler and darker and restrict pot size.
Brown tips to the leaves are the result of a dry atmosphere, try giving you plant a good misting and water more regularly.
