Product Overview

Monstera may be the perfect houseplant for you if you're looking to create a big, bold, tropical feel in your home. It features big wide leaves that look like they have holes or cuts in them, giving rise to two of its other common names: Swiss cheese plant and split-leaf philodendron (while monstera is not a type of philodendron, it is closely related to them). Grow monstera just about anywhere in your house. It tolerates low light, but grows faster and becomes more dramatic in a bright spot. In most areas, it can take some direct sun on its leaves when grown in the house. Water monstera regularly enough to keep the soil from drying out. The plant is somewhat drought tolerant, so you don't need to worry about keeping up with the watering all time. It's a survivor.
  • Excellent house plant, tolerate many different light levels, low, medium or high light
  • Water regular, don't allow soil to dry out completely; drain any excess water
  • Contemporary yet classic indoor plant; used in many interior design settings
  • Ships in stylish natural seagrass basket; basket is lined with a plastic liner to keep water from draining through floor
  • Super easy to grow and not only stylish but the Monstera also serves as an air purifier
  • Seagrass basket is hand-made and produced from natural materials; due to the baskets natural flexibility plant may need to be repositioned inside basket once it’s been taken out of the box

They advertise different products than what you get. Wrong basket was sent. Plant looked very poor upon opening. Did not make it a week before most of the foliage turned yellow. Maybe because of the weather during spring transport? I reached out to the company and was told a replacement would be sent in a week. At the end of that week I was told item was still not available or in stock and it would take about two more weeks for them to receive new stock. I'm still waiting for the replacement at the time of thos review.

This is a very decorative and beautiful plant. The plant was delivered during a cold snap and I think a few of the leaves suffered slightly. The plant is very easy to maintain and adds a nice warmth to the room. The larger leaves give the plant an almost tropical appearance. This plant is perfect for anyone looking to add a live plant to freshen up a room. A+

Different than pictured
This plant came in a different basket than pictured and was half the size as other reviewers posted and as what was described. Very disappointed as I had a specific spot for this specific plant. When I called Home Depot and the vendor Costa Farms, both said there was nothing they could do, but give a $16 refund (there is a plant the same exact size priced at $36.99). The plant itself is beautiful and healthy and packaging was perfect. Very frustrated in the customer service and that I did not receive the plant purchased and that neither provider wants to take responsibility for this mistake.

This Monstera plant was very well packed in shipping and was in perfect shape after shipping materials removed. It's a much bigger and fuller plant than I expected but it's absolutely beautiful and resilient. It is right at my front door when people arrive so it gives a tropical and welcoming as soon as someone enters. It's easy to maintain and already has new leaves opening. They claim it's a "survivor" type plant, which is perfect for me to take care of. The Seagrass Basket it came in did not fit well and I could never get it to totally envelope the pot so I purchased a slightly larger black pot to transfer it to. I also have more soil that I purchased but haven't transferred it yet.

Excellent quality of plant that arrived with its own temporary heat source on the bottom to protect it during shipping. The plant is tall (29") and about 12" wide. It comes with a seagrass basket that has handles to help move the plant. It's lined with plastic. The leaves are a dark, shiny green and it makes a very pretty accent to any room. It likes a lot of light and minimal care instructions are included that do state that. Also, they give you their website in case you want to look up more information.

Costa Farms took great care to package this Swiss Cheese Plant so that it would arrive at my door intact and in great shape. I would suggest unwrapping the plant outside because some of the soil fell out. After taking off the paper and the bubble wrap, I was amazed at how big the plant was! The woven basket was folded inside itself so you will have to open it up and then place the potted plant inside. The Swiss cheese plant is very easy to maintain and looks great in an open space because it is so large. This plant likes humidity so I will spray it often but it would thrive in any area of a house. If the leaves turn brown, then I’ll know that it needs more humidity or it might need repotting. As the plant grows taller I will need to provide some type of support. It will need to be repotted probably in two years but for now it’ll be in our bright living room but in the shaded corner. Word of note: This plant is poisonous to cats and dogs! It will cause a burning sensation so please keep it away from them.

The Monstera deliciosa (aka Swiss cheese plant and split-leaf philodendro) is a good house plant, it is tough and can take neglect and can tolerat different light conditions. The plant comes in a standard style nursery pot, with drainage holes, that is placed in a woven, plastic lined seagrass basket. The plant including the pot sits about 36" tall with a 24" wide spread. Costa Farms really goes above and beyond with the selection and packaging of their plants, I have only had perfect specimens from them. The plant was well packaged and even contained a heat pack for winter shipping, plants arrive quickly and very healthy. In addition to being beautiful and making your space look great, this plant purifies your indoor air naturally.

Costa Farms Monstera Deliciosa Swiss Cheese Plant in 9.25 inch Seagrass Basket. This plant arrives boxed, shipped directly, wrapped carefully and in great condition. Be careful as you unpack so you won’t tear the leaves. I opened the box and let the plant breathe overnight to allow the leaves to stretch. The Swiss Cheese name comes from the wide leaves that appear to have holes or cuts in them to look like cheese, also resembles a split-leaf philodendron plant. This plant tolerates low light, it grows faster and becomes more dramatic in a bright spot so I placed it by a window so it can get some direct sun. The plant is somewhat drought tolerant so don’t overload it with water, just keep the soil from drying out. The basket is not as strong as I thought it would be, so it needs some reshaping from shipping. The basket can be repositioned to hold the plant as you prefer.

This is just a gorgeous Monstra Deliciosa. It comes packed so well with a heating pad at the bottom so the plant won't get cold. She was so happy when she arrived. This plant is full on arrival and has a beautiful basket that it sets in. Unwrap your plant gently, take out the heat pad, and take it out of the basket. The basket is folded down, so pull the handles up from inside and the basket will pop up to it's full form. I love this. Plenty of soil and instructions on how to care for your new Monstra.

A beautiful example of Monstera Deliciosa, this was shipped in a 9" pot, stands about 32" high, and was expertly packaged. It arrived with no damage, no dirt spilled. It comes with a rattan surround with handles that the plants container sits it, creating a more pleasing display until transplanted into something more decorative. It should thrive indoors with low, medium, or high lighting conditions, and with medium/normal watering. Very easy to grow. Highly recommended!
