Your new cheese plant will have small orange bands wrapped around the leaf stems. These are used when cultivating a natural cheese plant to provide the leaves with additional support. If you remove them the leaves will bend over more than is necessary.
Your artificial cheese plant will arrive in a small black pot. The pot is weighted to give the cheese plant a stable, study base meaning that replanting is not a necessity. If you would like to plant your new cheese plant into a more decorative option, please see our recommended options below. For general advice on replanting your cheese plant head over to The Potting Shed.

Cheese plants or splitleaf philodendron are native to the raining forests of southern Mexico and South America. Growing up to 20m (65ft) tall with leaves measuring up to 90cm (3ft) long, cheese plants require high humidity and shade to survive and will die out quickly if exposed to extreme cold or frosty conditions. Fortunately, your new artificial cheese plant is ‘fully grown’ out of the box and requires no specific climate control – making them perfect low maintenance office plants.
