Monstera Adansonii, also known as Swiss Cheese vine or recently ‘monkey mask’ is a vining Monstera which is widespread across Central and South America. For some time people thought this plant was called Monstera Obliqua but after a few controversies we now know #itsneverobliqua 🙂

Monstera Adansonii is a climbing and trailing vine with elongated leaves that have holes in them. If you notice that your Monstera is producing long leafless stems, it means that is looking for something to climb on. You can either trim those stems or let your plant climb a brass plant support or coco pole. You can also grow it on a golden plant stake.

If you’re interested in the Monstera genus and especially in Monstera Adansonii/Obliqua, we can highly recommend following Mick Mittermeier and watching his video on this topic on Youtube.

Size: this plant is about 30cm long and it comes in a 12cm plastic pot.

Care Tips:

Light: bright indirect light, no direct sunlight

Watering: water when top 3cm of soil are dry to touch

Soil: well draining potting mix, we recommend using our aroid mix

Warning: this plant is toxic for humans and animals if ingested.
