Monstera 'Tauerii' (Fruit Salad Plant)
Monstera Deliciosa 'Tauerii' is native to southern Mexico. Commonly called Fruit Salad Plant or Swiss Cheese Plant because of the edible fruit it bears or the look of the leaves. This exotic indoor plant grows large leathery leaves and cream flowers. =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.
Now to tell the difference between the Tauerii and the Deliciosa. The Tauerii is the dwarf version growing to approx. 2m.
They can grow very, very large so you may need to stake it to support it as it grows. Position your Monstera in a bright well lit room with filtered sunlight. They don't like too much water so water sparingly, and make sure your Monstera isn't sitting in water as they don't like getting wet feet.
Size (Can grow to)
2 metres when fully grown. They are much more compact than the common Deliciosa variety
Bright Light. A partially shaded position under trees outside, or in bright indirect light indoors.
