I'm mad about mist, if you mist me regularly I'll love you forever!


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


Keep it consistent, once the top two inches of soil are dry, water me so I keep looking my best.

About Lil' Monstera Obliqua

The Lil' Monstera Obliqua or baby Swiss Cheese Plant, as it is more commonly referred to, has leaves that quite literally resemble the holes in a block of swiss cheese! This cheesy plant even further resembles its namesake as it ages or if over overwatered as it may turn yellow. As much as we love its cheesy resemblance, you should give any yellow leaves a trim to keep your plant looking in top form. We know the plant and food aren't the same, but we will also apply this concept to real swiss cheese and regularly trim (eat) it, just in case!

Speaking of caring for your Monkey Plant (yep, another nickname), this little monkey is actually really easy to look after and is rather low-maintenance. You will want to make sure your Philodendron Monkey Mask (just how many nicknames does this plant have?) has a drink on a regular basis as it is a rather thirsty plant due to enjoying its days spent basking in bright, indirect sunlight. An easy thing to look out for to tell when your Monkey Face Plant (c'mon now!) is thirsty is if its leaves start to curl. One of our top tips to keep your Lil' Monstera Obliqua looking fabulous is to keep an eye out for new leaves getting stuck on existing leaf holes, as this can sometimes cause the older leaves to tear slightly!

This baby plant isn't pet friendly, so keep furry friends and little ones away from it.
