Monstera Peru


Monstera Peru is a very rare fast-growing plant with thick and unusually stiff leaves that is often mistaken for Monstera Pinnatipartita when young because the leaves look alike.

The leaves of the Monstera Sp. Peru are somewhat wider, and look rounder, and differ from the leaves of Monstera Pinnatipartita that are more elongated.

Boost the Monstera Peru growth by using a totem pol or letting it climb to a surface so it can get bigger and healthier. Keep it away from pets and children because it is highly toxic if ingested.

Monstera Peru is also known as monstera karstenianum, monstera sp. peru.
