So here's the deets. The Monstera, a Swiss Cheese plant, is one of nature's coolest. It's native to Central America and the Brazilian rain forest and famous for its large leaves and natural leaf-holes. These lacy holes and notches in the leaves aren't just unusual, but also pretty useful in nature. They make sure it's resistant to storms; the rain and wind simply blows through the leaves. The name Monstera literally means “delicious monster", probably due to the fact that in the wild, it bears incredibly rich fruit that tastes like a combination of strawberries, passion fruit, mango, and pineapple. It's also ideal if you prefer low-maintenance house plants. It’s quite resilient, and would survive if you forget to water it every once in a while. Something we guarantee you will do.
Beautiful plant and lots of lovely healthy leaves, but the main stem was completely horizontal when it arrived. I’ve tied its stem to a makeshift stake in the hopes of helping it grow upwards, but it’s already got a new leaf unfurling so I’m assuming it’s still fairly healthy despite my clumsy handling. I’d definitely buy another plant from chive.
I love my new Mini Monstera and the Minute pot it's sitting in. I also can't say enough about the fantastic customer service I've received from the entire Chive team!
Since I bought i think its been 27 days, my mini monstera is pretty good and now I see lots of babies and also I already propagated and I place a pole to crawl my plants ,am happy that my monstera is looking healthy. Thanks chives
It came in such good condition when I had it delivered and has been wonderful to take care of and watch grow. New leaves are produced so quickly, I’ve had 2-3 every week!
It's better than what I imagined, thank you!
