Description for Monstera Obliqua
Plant height: 6 - 11 inches (15 - 28 cm)
Plant spread: 4 - 6 inches (10 - 16 cm)
Monstera features big (2-foot-wide) leaves that look like they have holes or cuts in them, giving rise to two of its other common names: Swiss cheese plant and split-leaf philodendron. While young, this houseplant has a dense, bushy shape, but as it grows, it wants to vine out.
Monstera can be kept bushy with regular pruning, or let it climb up a vertical support (such as fishing line fastened into the ceiling), for a decidedly bold and tropical look.

Flower colours: Whitish-green spadix and white spathe

Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.
Application of Fertilize
During the main growing season (April - August) feed the Monstera plant with organic fertilizer once a month.
Loosen the topsoil without disturbing the roots of the plant so it can uptake the nutrients and moisture easily.
