The first step to creating your own indoor Swiss Cheese Plant is getting your hands on one. You can buy them at most garden centers or go online and find a nursery that sells this plant. They are available for purchase year round, however they are usually cheapest during the cold months when not a lot of people are purchasing them.
The next step to creating your own indoor Swiss Cheese Plant is to give it some light. This plant is very adaptable and can thrive in low light. If your house receives a lot of sunlight, it will require a brighter spot to please it. If there is not much natural sunlight in your house or office, try investing in some compact fluorescent bulbs which will provide the same amount of light as natural sunlight.
If you decide to purchase this plant at a garden center, they will most likely have one already potted and ready for you just to pick up off the shelf. If you decide to order online, the plant will have to be shipped. Once you receive your plant, try not to repot it. The only time you should be repotting your indoor Swiss Cheese Plant is when the soil is completely dried out and there is no more moisture in it.
You do not have to worry about removing any of the dead leaves that are stuck together. The plant will continue to grow new leaves which will replace and cover the old leaves.

After it has produced an impressive root system underground, the plant spends as much as three years without any roots before beginning to grow new ones.
