This gorgeous Swiss Cheese Plant is another Monstera and gets its name from its large, heart-shaped leaves that develop holes as the plant ages (in a process called fenestration) making it resemble Swiss cheese.
The Swiss Cheese Plant is known for its amazing air-purifying abilities and can absorb high levels of Formaldehyde from the air

Recommended care instructions -
Light - Because of the Swiss cheese plant's tropical origin, it grows best in bright, indirect light. It's used to thriving under the cover of large trees in the jungle, and the foliage can easily burn if it's exposed to too much direct sun. If direct sunlight is unavoidable, limit exposure to just two or three hours of morning sun.
Soil - Swiss cheese plants grow best in peat-based potting mix which will help to trap moisture in the soil without causing it to become waterlogged. For strong growth, aim for a soil pH between 5.5 and 7.
Temperature and Humidity - These jungle plants thrive in very high humidity and warm temperatures. The closer you can mimic the plant's natural conditions, the better. Make sure your plant always remains in a spot that's above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and protect it from drafts. A humidity level above 50% is ideal. A warm, well-lit bathroom is a good spot for this plant. If you need to increase humidity, mist the plant or use a humidifier in its space.
