Know more about 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.

Monsteras are plants that are not especially difficult for beginners. Make sure your monstera doesn't get more than 30min of direct sunlight, water it often and use well-draining soil so it doesn't become too dense after a few waterings.

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

Key tips for successful care

  • You must use well-draining soil.
  • Place your monstera peru in the bathroom because it's a room with high humidity.
  • Don't provide more than 1-2 hours of direct morning sun.
  • Use a totem to make your Monstera Peru climb.
  • Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth and gently dry to keep them clean and healthy.
  • Keep it away from pets and children because Monstera Peru is highly toxic if ingested.

Monstera Peru care guide

Monstera Peru grows fast and healthy in bright but indirect light. A recommended space to put your monstera is next to a north-facing window, in a filterer window that is not facing north, or if you don't want to filter the light, place it a few feet inside so the sun in the afternoon doesn't hit its leaves.

Monsteras can tolerate between 30 minutes and a couple of hours of the direct morning sun. This means you don't have to be scared of the sun hitting its leaves, but I wouldn't recommend it because you will have to give it more attention because since you have to keep the soil moist at all cost.

Monstera Peru survives in low light conditions but it doesn't grow much, but remember that low-light doesn't mean without light. You can also make your monstera grow fast by providing a growing light for plants.
