    A new form of the ever popular (and easy to grow) Swiss cheese plant, this one has slightly ruffled rich green leaves, each laced with a series of irregularly shaped holes. If trained onto a support it can be used as a climber - otherwise just let the stems cascade and it will gradually spill over the edges of a shelf or ledge.

  • Home care: Keep it out of direct sunlight, ideally it likes a bright spot, and mist the leaves, particularly if the room is warm and dry. Also the leaves will appreciate being given a wash sometimes to keep them clean and dust free. This plant likes a moist soil but not a waterlogged soil, so in the winter feel the soil before you water it. In the summer you can water more freely.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant
