Monstera Minima - Small Swiss Cheese Plant
Monstera minima, also known as Philodendron tetrasperma 'Minima', is an unusual, miniature version of the potentially giant Swiss cheese plant! It is a native of Columbia and Panama and has more finely split leaves than the usual deliciosa.

- The leaf splits are generally alternate on both sides of theleaf.
- In its natural environment this is a slow-growing vine.
- Indoors it can be pruned to fit the required size and should be secured to a growing stake or moss pole, or allowed to trail from a height.
- Has a naturally compact habit and will eventually reach a maximum height of up to 150cm.
- This variety is rarely seen.
- Likes bright situation but not in direct sunlight as this can scorch the leaves.
- Likes fertile, humus-rich compost but free-draining (add perlite or fibre).
- Only water when the top 2cm of compost feels dry.
- Do not allow to stand in water.
- Can mist the leaves with water, or the air around the plant.
- A great plant for filtering toxins from the air.
- Trained up a moss pole.
- Currently measures around 80cm tall, including the pot.
