He is a strong baby who has the potential to survive in low light conditions but he can grow really well by producing more foliage when given medium to bright sunlight indirectly. Don’t even try to cook him in full sun all day because they can’t take excessive sunlight.


He can’t stay in water day long, there should be a proper drainage system within your pot or hanging basket. Keep it slightly moist but don’t make him dry completely. Water him every 6-7 days in summers to keep him fresh and young.


He can thrive in the temperature ranging from 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit equals to room temperature. He is your cool baby so keep him away from heaters, vents and fire places as these things can make the leaves dead or dry out.  


As he is a rainforest baby so he prefers humidity levels above 40%. He can survive on less water but don’t ignore him and water him when you feel the top two inches of the soil has become arid. Let the water drain properly.


Planning on to increase more plants like him then we must tell you that it can be easily propagated through layering, or through stem cuttings or in some cases through seeds (If appears). Use a growing medium and yes you are done. Just take care of him regularly.


Feed your baby well with a top-notch all -purpose fertilizer once every month. Try not to over fertilize it. Just take a balanced proportion of a houseplant fertilizer in a diluted form to feed him well. Especially if you will do that in the growing season, he will survive well.

Fun Fact

He is sometimes called The Swiss cheese plant because of its large, heart-shaped foliage that develop holes or perforations as the plant ages or goes towards fenestration, making its leaves look like a yummylicious Swiss cheese.

Should I repot my plant once it arrives?

When you receive your plant, it has been growing in it nursery pot for some time.  It is recommended that your repot your plant so that you have the opportunity to inspect the roots. This is a great opportunity to use a cache pot to match your home decor theme.  We offer a variety of cashe pots for sale. 

When repotting it is suggested to repot in the same size as the nursery pot but if your roots are extensive and full you can "pot up" your plant to a size larger which usually means adding an inch to either side of the plant. Be careful while watering them so they don’t hold too much water or their dirt gets too wet.

We you use Noot Rescue Mix, as a recommended soil for indoor houseplants or use a standard potting mix but be more careful about watering instru

When is the time to "pot up" or transfer my plant into a larger pot?

The answer to this is when your water is draining out of the pot completely and never really gets your soil moistened.  It is then that there are likely more roots more soil. Repotting is usually done once in a year or so. 

Make sure to never "pot up" more than an inch on each side and immediately after potting, lightly water your plant.
