Daisy | Monstera Deliciosa | Swiss Cheese Plant

Native to South America, the Monstera Deliciosa (or Swiss Cheese Plant) is one of the most iconic houseplants around.  With her beautiful big dark green leaves and ability to climb to great heights (although they take a long while to get there) she is a stylish addition to any home.

Used to clambering up the tallest trees, this beauty will keep growing and you can train her to climb a moss pole.

☼ Sunlight: A bright spot but no direct sunlight 
☂ Water: Fairly regularly but let the soil dry out 
♡ Care: Easy
◯ Pot Size: Medium 15cm – 17cmLarge – 19cm+


She will arrive in a plastic growing pot (14cm medium | 17cm large), or you can add on a perfectly fitting pot to go with her – I recommend a Medium 15cm – 17cmLarge – 19cm+ or larger as I always recommend a decorative pot a couple of cm larger.



Care Advice

Monstera Deliciosa | Swiss Cheese Plant

Monstera plants make a fantastic gift and are easy to care for.  This plant loves a bit of bright sunshine but not too much direct sunlight – think of their natural home, some light coming though the treetop canopy but mostly pretty shaded by the treetops.  Mine loves life with a bit of early morning sun and a shadier afternoon.     

 Monsteras grow aerial roots to help them draw nutrients as they grow so it’s good to give her something to grab onto like a moss pole.   

Take care not to overwater and check that the soil has dried out before watering. Her leaves will usually droop a little when she’s thirsty so you’ll know when she needs a drink.   

The medium size will be from 30-50cm and the large size are 50-70cm.

 As with all our houseplants, Daisy is named after an inspiring woman. This time, it’s writer and comedian Daisy-May Cooper.  I first found her in BBC3 comedy This Country (a must-watch) and her brutally honest and hilarious instagram has been making me laugh for the last few months!             

 Monsteras aren’t great for cats as they can cause irritation if eaten so you’ll need to keep it out of the way of your fluffy feline!

As a small business, customer satisfaction is the most important thing to me.  As carefully as I pack your order, there is a small chance your items could be damaged during transit.

In order to process the refund or re-sending of any damaged item, I will need photographs of the photographic evidence of the item(s) claimed for clearly showing damage to external packaging, internal packaging, parcel label on item and damage to the item, within 7 days.  Without this information and photographs, I will be unable to process your refund or send out replacement products.

I ordered a houseplant from Iris & Co in the last few weeks and was very happy to receive a healthy, beautiful plant within a week of ordering. Gemma was quick to respond and very helpful. I love the info cards included with purchase that include helpful tips on how to care for each plant! Will definitely order again.

I ordered a beautiful plant and pot. They arrived quickly and safely, they were well packaged. I absolutely love them, they look just as good as the photos on the website, I’m really pleased, thank you!

5* Claire H

I ordered a house plant and pot from Gemma and am really pleased with it so far.  The website pot recommendation was really helpful and also the plant care tips that were emailed to me separately. Gemma delivered the plants herself and the presentation was beautiful. Would really recommend for any gifts (to other or self!).

Bought a “phoebe” plant as I can’t seem to keep houseplants alive! Delivery was amazing (plant still seemed happy!) and I even had a little freebie which I also love. Phoebe has settled in nicely in her new pot (also from Iris & Co, beautiful). Couldn’t ask for more and would definitely recommend!

Lovely plant! Super speedy delivery! My plant has settled in well. She is keeping me company as I work, and makes me a little happier when doing admin!
