The Swiss cheese plant (Monstera adansonii) gets its common name from its large, heart-shaped leaves that develop holes as the plant ages (in a process called fenestration). This makes the leaves resemble Swiss cheese.

Native to Central and South America, the Swiss cheese plant is a tropical perennial that's typically grown indoors. Like its Monstera family cousins, Monstera adansonii has a fast growth rate and a vining habit. But it will remain at a manageable size when grown in a container indoors.

When cultivated as a houseplant, Swiss cheese plants are typically grown from young nursery plants and can be potted at any time. It's important to note that all parts of Monstera plants are toxic to pets, so be careful when growing them indoors.
