Monstera Karstenianum is an easy going tropical from South America. Also known as Monstera Sp. Peru, this plant sports glossy corrugated leaves with a leathery texture. We recommend growing this plant as you would any other Monstera. Allow the soil to dry out in between waterings and keep it in bright indirect light.
Monstera grow very well outdoors, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your Philodendron in Full to Partial Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about every 4-5 days outdoors with moderate temperatures. During periods of extreme heat, you may need to water your Monstera every 2-3 days.
