The Monstera, a.k.a. Swiss cheese plant, is originally from the tropical regions of Central America. It is a super trendy plant with quite healthy side effects. With its large green leaves, it purifies the air. This fine feature ensures a healthier indoor climate. These properties combined with the Monstera’s great looks, make it the perfect houseplant. Nowadays, the Monstera is a major source of inspiration in the fashion and art world. Its leaf pattern is often used for anything from clothes to watercolour paintings. During the growing season – from April to October – this houseplant produces a new leaf almost weekly. Is that not happening to your Monstera? No worries, it’s most likely an easy fix. Just move the plant to a spot that’s a bit lighter. Although a slightly shady spot is OK for the Monstera, it cannot go without daylight. So don’t put it in full shade. If you follow these rules, your Monstera will remain completely happy. Want to know more? Check out our ultimate Monstera guide.

Plants and health:

Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
