How to Grow Swiss Cheese Plant
- The Swiss cheese plant is a tropical ornamental that has aerial roots growing downwards from the stem. The roots brace against the ground or against any available support, giving Swiss cheese plant a vine-like tendency to climb if they have support. Without support, they tend to sprawl or trail.
- A Swiss cheese plant will need some support if you want it to climb. In the wild, it uses air roots to push itself upward on an adjoining tree or woody vine. When growing it as a houseplant, you can simulate this by providing the plant with a moss stick extending upward from the center of the pot.
- Swiss cheese plant has no serious disease or pest problems. Like most houseplants, aphids, mealybugs, thrips, scale or spider mites can occasionally be an issue. Insecticidal soaps are usually the best non-toxic solution to these pests.
- Light : Monster adansonii plants are native to the jungles of Central and South America, where they grow under the coverage of trees. Therefore, the plants grow best in indirect sunlight. If direct sunlight is unavoidable, limit the exposure to just two to three hours of morning sun.
- Soil : This plant grows best in peat-based potting soil in a pot that has a large drainage hole. The peat helps to trap moisture in the soil without allowing it to become waterlogged. For strong growth, aim for a soil pH of 5.5 to 7.0.
- Water : Before you water a Swiss cheese vine, do the knuckle test—stick your finger up to the knuckle into the soil to see how wet or dry the soil is. If the soil is nearly dry, water it. Don’t let the soil dry out entirely.
- Temperature and Humidity : M. adansonii is best grown in a conservatory or greenhouse where humidity, temperature, and light are all maximized. These are deep-jungle plants that thrive on very high humidity, lots of moisture during the rainy season, and high temps. The closer you can mimic the plant’s natural conditions the better—choose well-lit, warm and humid bathrooms or kitchens or mist plants frequently. You could also place a humidifier near the plant to keep the air moist. Keep the plant above 60 degrees Fahrenheit if possible, but it can survive brief cold spells with some die-back. You can move the plants outside in the summer.
- Fertilizer : Once you’ve potted or repotted the plant, don’t fertilize within four to six months if you’re using a general houseplant potting soil. These soils have slow-release fertilizer already mixed in. After this, fertilize when you water during the summer and spring months, then refrain from feeding during the fall and winter months.
- Potting and Repotting : In nature, M. adansonii plants are climbers, scooting up rainforest trees into the canopy and enlarging as they grow. Many growers, however, use them as trailers or hanging plants, which necessitates less frequent repotting. Repot every other year as needed, and refresh the potting soil annually. Failure to keep them in nutritious soil will hurt these plants.
