Alfredo's survival guide


Alfredo is a Monstera Deliciosa which is commonly referred to as a Swiss Cheese Plant, Swiss Cheese Vine and Five holes plant. All these names gave Alfredo a bit of an identity crisis. To top it all off, botanists once lumped him in with the wrong family! Fortunately the record has been set straight and we know he's part of the Monstera family. It was all very stressful for Alfredo so we've agreed not to bring it up to him again. Can you help us keep that promise?

How to care for Alfredo

Meet the Monstera Deliciosa! Hailing from Mexico, allow us to introduce a plant with more character than a telenovela. This guy is a born climber, so keep a close watch on those adventurous leaves. As he matures, his foliage will start rocking those iconic Swiss Cheese plant holes, turning your space into a living masterpiece. Now, when it comes to sunshine, the Monstera loves it but prefers a bit of shade – think of it as his siesta time. For hydration, give him a good sip, but let the top inch of soil dry out between drinks, usually every 1-2 weeks. Just remember to provide this amigo with a sturdy support; after all, he's the star of this melodrama!
