Monstera Peru (also known as monstera karstenianum) is an unusual monstera species that doesn’t produce the fenestrated leaves usually associated with monsteras. Instead, this small variety has small, rounded, somewhat leathery leaves that are puckered and ridged, similar to some species of peperomia.
This plant originated in Peru, which is where it gets its nickname (no surprise there, right?) and because its leaves are so different from other varieties of monstera, the care for this plant differs a bit from that of its cousins in the monstera family. But though it’s a little different, monstera Peru plant care is still quite simple, and many consider this variety to be more forgiving than many of its relatives!
Here’s everything you need to know about monstera Peru plant care so you can bring this beautiful variety into your indoor jungle.
