Monstera deliciosa 'Tauerii'

 

Swiss Cheese Plant 'Tauerii'

The Swiss cheese plant needs extra space within a home as it grows fairly tall when it matures. This climbing shrub is an ideal plant for a conservatory or for large rooms. Sturdy support is essential. If your aim is to grow a tall plant with large leaves, you must care for the ariel roots by either pushing them into compost or use a moss stick. 'Monstera Tauerii' is a dwarf evergreen tropical shrub with decorative heart-shaped leaves and weird perforations. It is a must either indoors, on the patio or balcony or in a shady spot in the garden.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Temperatures between 65-80ºF (18-27ºC) are ideal. Lower than 65ºF (18Cº) will slow down this plants growth and below 50ºF (10ºC) will stop growth. A fairly bright room or bright with plenty of shade is best. Direct sunlight will damage the leaves and not enough light can slow growth down. A peat based potting soil mix with perlite or sand is ideal. Soil that drains well is needed.

 

Propagation

From Late Spring TO Mid Summer

Propagate from a mature stem tip cuttings during summer below an aerial root at the node. Place the stem cutting about 1 or 2 inches deep in moist potting soil and water moderately. It should begin rooting within the first couple of weeks or so.
