Plant Care Guide: Swiss Cheese Plant

Swiss Cheese Plant // Monstera Adansonii

A cousin of the Monstera Deliciosa, the Swiss Cheese Plant is a delicate darling that makes a stunning hanging or trailing plant thanks to her vine-like growth. She's a lover of humidity so enjoys a misting every once in a while.

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, so you can give them a mist every so often, and don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
This gal loves to climb, so as she grows taller she'll appreciate the support of a totem. She's also a big lover of humidity, making her a perfect pick for a bathroom.
If her leaves start to turn yellow, it's most likely a problem with overwatering, so be sure to let the top few cm dry out before you water her again. And if the tips of the leaves start to turn brown & crisp, try increasing the humidity around her by misting, grouping with other plants or sitting her atop a pebble tray filled with water.
