Monstera Peru, also known as Monstera Karstenianum, is a tropical plant native to Peru and Ecuador. It's a climbing plant with heart-shaped leaves and fenestrations, similar to Monstera deliciosa. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Monstera Peru prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but its growth and color will be less vibrant.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Humidity: Monstera Peru likes moderate to high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 60-80Ā°F (15-27Ā°C).

  5. Soil: Monstera Peru prefers a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves.

  8. Support: Monstera Peru is a climbing plant and benefits from a support structure, such as a trellis or moss pole.

  9. Propagation: Monstera Peru can be propagated by stem cuttings. Take a stem cutting with a few leaves and aerial roots, and plant it in a pot with moist potting mix. Cover the pot with a plastic bag to create a mini greenhouse, and place it in bright, indirect light.

  10. Pests and Diseases: Monstera Peru is relatively pest-free, but watch out for spider mites and mealybugs. Overwatering can cause root rot.

Remember to keep your plant away from pets and children, as it's toxic when ingested. Monstera Peru is a relatively low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of tropical beauty to any room with its unique leaves and climbing habit.
