Indoor plants help bring personality, break up spaces and introduce new textures and tones.

At Soto we want to make looking after your plants as easy and enjoyable as possible. The Swiss Cheese Plant profile will help you get to know your new plant.


Originally native to the rainforests of Mexico and Central America, the Monstera deliciosa thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but growth may slow down.

This plant can be pruned to control size and shape and it is recommended to remove any yellow or damaged leaves. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged by allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. 

We’d suggest reducing watering during the winter months when the plant is not actively growing.

Monstera deliciosa can be trained to grow on a support or trellis. Be aware, insufficient light can lead to the plant stretching towards the light source, leading to leggy growth.

The name "deliciosa" comes from the edible fruit it produces in its natural habitat. However, it is rare for indoor plants to fruit.

Overall, Monstera deliciosa is a stunning and low-maintenance houseplant that adds a tropical touch to indoor spaces. With proper care, it can become a focal point in your home or office.
