Monstera Peru, aka Monstera karstenianum sp. Peru, is a rare but easy to care for plant belonging to the Aroid family. It has embossed, stiff, dark green leaves that can climb on trees, or moss poles in a home environment. This plant adds a touch of exotic to any interior setting and is ideal for collectors looking for something out of the ordinary.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Care Guide

How to take care of Monstera Peru

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

Introducing the Monstera Peru, a captivating and exotic houseplant that epitomizes resilience and creativity while adding a touch of the jungle to your living space.

Unlike its Monstera relatives with their distinctive fenestrations, the Monstera Peru boasts solid, textured leaves resembling a reptile's skin. This intriguing pattern echoes life’s complexity and encourages us to embrace our own unique qualities.

To let your Monstera Peru thrive, provide it with bright, indirect light. This will help it unfurl more of its uniquely textured leaves, reminding us that, like this exotic beauty, we too unfold in intriguing ways when nurtured in the right conditions.

As for water, allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. It's a lesson in self-sustainability and balance, reminding us that sometimes, taking a step back can offer us the room we need to grow.

Over time, the Monstera Peru may climb or trail, giving you options for how to display it. Whether it's ascending a moss pole or draping elegantly from a hanging planter, it serves as a constant reminder that there's no one right path to growth.

Welcome the Monstera Peru into your home. It's not just a plant; it's an emblem of resilience, the power of uniqueness, and the endless possibilities that life offers when we dare to be different.
