Monstera obliqua Peru is a rare tropical plant that is native to the forests of Peru. It is also known as the "Swiss Cheese Vine" due to the unique holes and perforations in its leaves. Here are some care tips for Monstera obliqua Peru:

  1. Light: This plant prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Monstera obliqua Peru thrives in high humidity, so consider using a humidifier or placing a tray of water near the plant to increase humidity levels. Misting the leaves can also help.

  4. Temperature: This plant prefers temperatures between 65-85Ā°F (18-29Ā°C).

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining, aerated soil mix that retains moisture but doesn't become waterlogged.

  6. Fertilizer: During the growing season (spring and summer), fertilize every two weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: You can prune back the plant to encourage fuller growth and prevent it from becoming too leggy.

  8. Propagation: Monstera obliqua Peru can be propagated from stem cuttings. Make sure each cutting has at least one node (where a leaf or leaf stem attaches to the main stem) and allow the cuttings to root in water or moist soil.

  9. Pests: Watch out for spider mites and mealybugs, which can be common pests for this plant. Inspect the leaves regularly and treat any infestations promptly.
