Monstera Peru is a rare but easy to care for plant belonging to the aroid family. Unlike other monstera varieties such as monstera dubia and monstera adansonii, the Monstera Peru does not develop fenestrated leaves but instead, its thick leaves are characterized by a deep ridge-like texture, similar to some peperomias, and dark green colour. naturally has an upward, vining growth habit and does well when provided with a support to climb such as a moss pole or trellis.
This small monstera plant rarely grows taller than 6 to 8 feet indoors with leaves topping out at about 9 centimeters long. While it can be difficult to acquire, Monstera Peru are surprisingly low-maintenance plant that thrives in indoor environments. It requires less light and water than other species in the monstera genus and are known for being slow-growing as well, meaning they aren’t likely to outgrow your space any time soon.
Place the Monstera in a semi shady or light spot, in filtered sunlight. Make sure the potting soil is always mildly moist, but not wet. It’s best to water the plant regularly, and to give small amount of water each time, just enough to moisten the potting soil. We also recommend regularly misting the leaves to maintain a high humidity.
