Swiss Cheese Plant- Monstera Deliciosa

Big, bold and beautiful are some of the common descriptions for the Monstera deliciosa plant. Native to rainforests in Central America, the Monstera deliciosa displays large glossy heart-shaped leaves with characteristic splits throughout the foliage. You'll also spot intricate aerial roots growing out of the soil which help the plant support the stems of the leaves.
