Your Monsteras grows best in bright indirect light, although it may also thrive in deep shade.
If you're planting your Swiss cheese plant indoors, make sure it's near a window that provides brilliant indirect light rather than direct sunshine.

If your monsteras' leaves are becoming brown and dropping off, give it some water.
