The Monstera Karstenianum, more commonly known as the Monstera Peru, is a rare plant that looks like a Monstera but acts like a succulent. It doesn’t grow very large and has vibrant glossy, green leaves that feel leathery to the touch. They also have a gorgeous deep green veining on the leaves.
The more mature the plant gets, the deeper and darker the veins will get, appearing like an intricate carving. Unlike the Monstera Deliciosa and Monstera Adansonii, this variety doesn’t have any holes or fenestrations (splits) in the leaves.
This plant is a tropical plant and thrives in a more humid environment with bright, indirect sunlight and requires water when the top inch of soil is dry.
