Plant Care Tips: Swiss Cheese Vine

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate partial shade. Avoid full sun as this can scorch the leaves. 
  • Water: Water when the soil feels dry. Be sure to check soil weekly. 
  • Humidity: This is a jungle plant meaning it enjoys humid environments. Try misting regularly or keeping it in the bathroom or conservatory.
  • Temperature: Keep at temperatures of 18-27°C. Avoid draughts and temperatures below 12°C.
  • Fertiliser: Feed once a month using a well-balanced fertiliser. 
  • Cleaning: Wipe occasionally using a damp cloth to get rid of any dust and dirt. 
  • Propagation: This plant can be propagated using stem cuttings.

Pets: Toxic. Keep away from pets and children. 

Swiss Cheese Vine - Common Issues and Questions 

Why are the leaves of my Swiss Cheese Vine brown and yellowing?

Brown, yellowing leaves are most often a sign of overwatering. Make sure to only water your Swiss Cheese Vine when the top 3-5cm of soil is dry.

Help! I think my Swiss Cheese Vine has root rot!

Don’t panic! Root rot is very common with indoor plants and is almost always a result of overwatering. You can treat root rot by removing the affected roots with a pair of shears. Repot your plant into a new, well-draining pot and refill using an appropriate potting mix. Finally, be sure not to overwater your plant in the future - the Swiss Cheese Vine should only be watered when the soil is dry!

My Swiss Cheese Vine has drooping leaves. What am I doing wrong? 

Drooping leaves can be due to a lack of moisture. This can be a result of too much drought or too little watering. Be sure to water your plant thoroughly and mist it regularly. 

Common pests: The Swiss Cheese Vine is susceptible to spider mites, scale, mealybugs, aphids, and thrip, which are most common during the spring months.
