The Cheese plant also known as the Monstera deliciosa has been at the forefront of the houseplant resurgence, with homes across the UK adopting these big jungly plants and competing for the biggest leaf splits and holes. Helping aid their home in creating a fresh environment.
Swiss cheese plant improve air quality in three ways:
1. Their big, textured leaves are covered in tiny pores which take in carbon dioxide and expel oxygen. All plants produce oxygen as they photosynthesise, but the large surface area of Swiss Cheese Plants means they’re especially efficient at doing so.
2. Large, waxy leaves like this are also mean dust trappers. Debris that would otherwise fall on surfaces and remain airborne will sit on Monstera leaves, where it can be easily wiped away, so both you and your plant can breathe easily!
3. If you keep your Swiss Cheese Plant lightly misted, once every 5-7 days, it will add humidity to the air, warding off ailments such as dry skin conditions and respiratory problems that are aggravated by dryness.
