Enjoy Unboxing, Care & Fungus Gnat Prevention of the Easy Houseplant Monstera Vine Swiss Cheese Plant; the Monstera adansonii.
-What do you do when you don’t have the room for one of the larger varieties of Monstera plants?
Well it’s simple, you search for the Monstera Swiss Cheese Vine Plant (Monstera adansonii)
-What do you do when you can’t find this beauty within your local stores?
Well it’s too simple, you simply order from an online plant provider like Logee’s!
Within this blog post I’ll share my Logee’s Unboxing, Care & Fungus Gnat prevention of this Easy To Grow Houseplant Monstera Vine Swiss Cheese Plant (Monstera adansonii)
Type of Plant:
The Monstera Adansonii or better known as The Monstera Swiss Cheese Vine Plant is a Tropical Plant. A Climbing Plant with Dark Green Foliage that Produces Holes within it’s Leaves with Age.
This is an easy to care for houseplant.
It prefers bright indirect light, fast draining soil, and a good bit of humidity and warmth.
I prefer to use THIS SOIL on all my houseplants alongside these Fungus Gnat Traps been my saving grace fighting off fungus gnats!
This beauty loves to climb.
A nice way to provide a climbing spot for it would be a trellis, a growing pole or my favorite way is to have it trailing as a hanging plant. I love using THESE MACRAMÉ HANGERS.
This is an easy to propagate plant.
A cutting above a couple of nodes and placing it within water is a very easy way to propagate!
Grow it within the water until you see a nice production of roots, there after it can be transplanted into your choice of potting mix.
As with any houseplants Fungus Gnats can be quite the little monsters!
My solution are my two fave steps of THESE TRAPS and THIS SOIL.

If you are lucky enough to find one at your local garden center, have fun picking this beauty out! They all seem to have their own personality and own looks.
Where I Purchased My Plant:
I personally ordered mine from the well known online Garden Center Logee’s.
The plant arrived nicely packaged, wrapped, and labeled.
It did have a few dark spots on the leaves as it was shipped during a cold time.
Thank you for enjoying my Blog!
I sure do appreciate it and would love to hear from you in the comments!
Peace, Love, and Simple Living Friends!
Great article. I have suffered one too many times with fungus gnats bought in via the potting mixes.
Love your adansonii! I’ve been thinking about getting one to put with my baby Monstera deliciosa. I’ll have to check out the fungus gnat traps you mentioned. Thankfully I don’t have a problem with them right now, but they are such a nuisance! Good to know the traps work :D
Thank you Carrie Ann!
The fungus gnat traps are indeed good to have on had “just in case”
Thanks a bunch for stopping by to say hi.
I’ll make certain to check out your Leafy Little Home as well.
