Sun: Monstera Peru's do best in bright and medium indirect sunlight. Any room with a decent window will do. Monstera Peru can not usually handle direct sun, and the leaves will let you know if they got too much sun by turning yellow.
Water: Every 1 to 2 weeks. Be sure to let the soil dry out in-between. If your monstera is in a sunny location you will have to water it more frequently. Leaves will have brown spots appear if the monstera needs watering more frequently.
Humidity: Average household room humidity will do just fine, but monsteras love humid conditions like bathrooms.
Temperature: 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 30°C).
Monstera Peru Care (Karstenianum)
Are you looking to add a gorgeous Monstera Peru to your tropical houseplant collection? It's not like most monstera's, and knowing how to keep it happy will let your Peru grow for years to come.
Follow our care guide below, and let's grow something great together.
Monstera Peru Sun Light Requirements
Monstera Peru's grow fast and healthy in bright, indirect light. It's recommended to place the Monstera near a north-facing window, or in a filtered window that doesn't face north
Its deep green leaves means it can soak up the sun's rays quicker than other plants, so direct light will do more harm than good.
How much water for a Monstera Peru
If you tend to forget to water every now and then, this is the plant for you! It's thick leaves store water, so adding too much water on a frequent basis will drown it.
Once a week, or every two weeks is common. Remember, the more sun your plant gets the more water it will need. Brighter rooms will mean a higher watering frequency, and darker rooms means less watering.

I love the Monstera Peru leaves. They are a deep green, and the leaves are thick, and have a dragon-scale texture to them. I finally found one after a long search!

I got a Monstera Peru as a gift and love it. People ask me about it all the time and winder what it is. The leaves are what they mainly ask about. Their texture is so beautiful.
