Container Size: The plant pictured here is from our in-store selection. Exact pot size/style may vary.
Details: Monstera karstenianum sp. Peru is a collector's houseplant! The leaves and growth habit are completely different from M. deliciosa and M. adansonii, with a silvery patina that is reminiscent of some of the interesting Piper and Scindapsus houseplant species. Most home-growers report that Monstera Peru is a co-operative houseplant that can be grown on a pole of allowed to vine free-form.
Monstera karstenianum sp. Peru prefers a location away from excessive direct sunlight, although it does require a bright location diffused-light location to be at its best. As with all potted plants, we strongly recommend potting into containers with excellent drainage, compost-based potting soil and to fertilize several times per year with all-purpose organic plant food. Foliage plants benefit from regular showering with fast-flowing freshwater... literally, take them for a shower every month or so! Showering removes dust and helps ensure a pest-free growth indoors.
