Monstera Peru


SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


Monstera Peru (also known as Monstera karstenianum)is an unusual monstera species that doesn’t produce the fenestrated leaves usually associated with monsteras. Instead, this variety has small, rounded, somewhat leathery leaves that are puckered and rigid, similar to some species of peperomia. It prefers bright, indirect sunlight though it can handle being a little farther away from a window, or in a north-facing window. Because this monstera variety has thicker leaves that store water (more like the leaves of a succulent), it won’t need to be watered quite as often as other monsteras. This also means that monstera karstenianum doesn’t like to sit in wet soil. Water when the top 3-4 inches of soil feels dry. Do not overwater.
