LARGE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR CLICK & COLLECT OR LOCAL DELIVERY Wallace, a Swiss Cheese Plant or Monstera Deliciosa, is one of the most popular houseplants there is. You can see why with its huge, shiny leaves - in fact, Monstera Deliciosa literally translates to 'Delicious Monster'. Wallace is an epiphyte, which means it grows in small gaps in and around large trees. Believe it or not, the gaps in its leaves allow light to reach the lower areas of the plant. If you order a small plant it may arrive without notches in all its leaves, but don't worry, they'll appear as it matures. With its gorgeous waxy leaves, it’s a real statement plant. It’s super easy to take care of, and will even tolerant lower light.
Wallace, Monstera Deliciosa
Wallace prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
