Swiss Cheese Vine (Monstera adansonii)
With its popularity growing exceptionally fast, we are happy to offer the Swiss Cheese Vine, also called Monstera adansonii. This is a very easy-to-grow houseplant with exotic, eye-catching foliage. Each mature leaf displays multiple oval holes, called fenestrations. These holes are theorized to allow sun and water through to the lower leaves in tropical environments and help the leaves stand up to forceful wind. Swiss Cheese Vine is meant to climb and when given a trellis or pole, it will reward you with larger leaves as the plant grows taller. Alternatively, when not climbing, the plant reverts to a more vine-like growth, sending out thin branches that look beautiful cascading from a hanging basket or draping over tables and windowsills. This plant prefers a fast draining soil mix, bright, indirect light and plenty of humidity.

There is much confusion about Monstera adansonii and Monstera obliqua. Obliqua’s leaves are very thin and 90% of the leaf surface is holes. Adansonii’s leaves are thicker with holes that cover about 50% of the leaf surface. Obliqua is extremely rare. Adansonii is often called M. obliqua but they are not the same species.

  1. The real deal Review by Kat
    How do you rate this product?

    I have ordered other Adansonii from other growers in the past and they all fail in comparison to the one that Logee's sell. This one is the real deal! All leaves have lots of Swiss cheese holes, even the youngest leaf. Packed delicately and it arrived in pristine condition. The plant is very healthy with very established root system. I'm so excited! My #plantmother friends will definitely be asking where my Adansonii came from. Logee's - highly recommended!!! (Posted on 11/10/2018)

  2. The REAL andansonii Review by Ian
    How do you rate this product?

    So many places miss-name what I believe is Monstera Friedrichsthalii as Andansonii but this is the real deal! I was so happy when I saw Logees had it. I gambled on it because the picture looked like the real thing hoping it wasn’t going to be Friedrichsthalii. It came, as all the plants I’ve ordered from Logees, perfect condition, new leaf unfurling, very lush, and QUICK! Couldn’t be happier! A must buy for odd-ball collectors. (Posted on 10/7/2018)
