Botanical name: Monstera sp. ‘Peru’


Common name: none


Family: ARACEAE


Toxicity: toxic to pets, humans if ingested — insoluble calcium oxalate crystals.

Native range: Peru


Care requirements: 

  • Medium — bright indirect light
  • Well draining, open soil
  • Moderate humidity
  • Liquid fertilise every 2 weeks during the active growing period
  • Evenly moist during active growing period, can tolerate some dryness during colder season

Most suitable location: East facing window is best, alternatively 1.5-2m from a north facing window, large bright south facing window also suitable


Notes: this monstera species has never been botanically classified, hence no binomial. The name Monstera karstenianum has never been officially documented or recorded, so is quite literally made up.
This species seems to be a heavier feeder. To reduce inter-veinal chlorosis, we recommend fertilising at 1/2 label recommended dilution every 2 weeks during active growing period, and 1/4 recommended dilution every 2-3 weeks during cooler periods.
