Also called the “swiss cheese plant,” the Monstera deliciosa is famous for its natural leaf holes.

PLANT BIO Monstera deliciosa is a species of evergreen tropical vine that is a part of Araceae, the aroid family. One of the few aroids which produces edible fruit, hence the species epithet deliciosa. However, it's incredibly rare that a Monstera will flower or produce fruit indoors. Instead, this plant is famous for its beautiful broad green leaves with natural leaf-holes, called fenestrations, which have led to the rise of its nickname, ‘swiss cheese plant’. These holes are theorized to maximize sun fleck capture on the forest floor by increasing the spread of the leaf while decreasing the mass of leaf cells to support.
