Gromit, a Variegated Swiss Cheese Plant or Monstera Deliciosa Albo Variegata is one of the most sought-after houseplants on the planet! He is characterized by striking white marks, or patches, that randomly adorn his leaves.


You may or may not know that plants with variegation tend to be more delicate than their green brothers & sisters, and Gromit is no exception. He produces less chlorophyll and as such photosynthesize less.


Variegation in Monstera is a genetic trait, in fact, the odds of variegation are 1 in 1,000,000. Yes, you read that right, 1 in every million plants might be variegated! Some are far more variegated than others, but bear in mind that this means they're far more difficult to care for!


Gromit 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.

Gromit, Monstera Deliciosa Albo Variegata

  • Gromit 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

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
