Monstera 'Fruit Salad Plant' (Monstera Deliciosa)
A species of flowering plant native to southern Mexico and Panama, Monstera deliciosa is a hardy and easy to care for plant known by many names, but most commonly the “Swiss cheese plant” due the unique development of ridges and holes on its more mature leaves, known as fenestrations. The “deliciosa” part of the plant’s name comes from the pineapple-like fruit it bears in its natural habitat!
Young plants have leaves that are smaller with no lobes or holes but as it matures it develops lobed and fenestrate leaves. This incredibly popular house plant will look amazing in a decorative pot as a focal point in any home.
*Please note that due to the bulky and heaviness of Monstera Deliciosa (25cm) & 30cm) these plants can only be delivered within metro Melbourne - no shipping.
