SP Peru Appearance and Description  – Monstera Karstenianum

We guess you are curious, and you want to know how Monstera karstenianum plants look like, i.e., their leaves, stems, and growing habits.

1. Growing habits

Monstera Peru is a tropical, evergreen climbing hemiepiphyte. It grows both on hosts as an epiphyte and as a terrestrial plant on the ground.

In its natural jungle rainforest habitat, this flowering plant grows as an understory plant (horizontally) or climbing trees. It has long, vine-like stems that resemble those of pothos.

One thing that distinguishes it from other Monsteras is the lack of adult fenestrated leaves i.e., its leaves remain the same or slightly larger.

Finally, Monstera Peru has a medium growth rate. And this growth rate is greatly influenced by light, a place to climb, light, soil, and other growing conditions.

2. Size

Monstera Peru can grow up to 20 feet (6m) long or more in its natural habit. Inside your house, expect this plant to grow up to 4 to 6 feet. However, if given a climbing place and ideal growing conditions, it may have vines longer than 6 feet.

Lastly, when compared to Monstera deliciosa, it is unlikely to take over your home as deliciosa does. Instead, it will resemble a smaller philodendron or pothos variety.

3. Leaves

Monstera Peru has oval to slightly elongated leaves. These leaves are heavily textured (puckered or bullate), glossy and deep green with medium to light green variegations or markings. Usually, they are dark green near their veins and medium to light green flecks or highlights on the surface, especially in the puckered areas.

How do they feel? They are rigid (stiff), flat, thick with a leathery texture. The ripple and corrugated surface appearance somewhat look like some Peperomia caperata or emerald ripple peperomia. However, the colorations are different.

That is not all. The leaves are not heart-shaped with a silvery sheen like the Monstera siltepecana. But they more puckered than Monstera pinnatipartita and slightly shorter.

Unlike what you would expect of a Monstera, mature Monstera Peru leaves are not fenestrated (perforated) and they don’t split, making this plant unique.

How big are the leaves? The Monstera karstenianum leaves are about 2 to 4 inches. But they may grow slightly larger if provided with a place to climb and ideal growing conditions.

Finally, the leaves have relatively shorter greenish grooved petioles.

4. Stems

Monstera karstenianum has vine-like green stems resembling some pothos or philodendrons. Also, they have aerial roots for anchoring to the host when climbing.

Usually, leaves are about 2 inches apart. But when not given a place to climb, leaves then to be further apart and fewer.

Where to grow Monstera Peru – Monstera Karstenianum

Monstera karstenianum makes good pot or hanging basket houseplants. Outdoors, you can grow them as a ground cover or let them wrap around trees or climb walls, wood fences, and so on.

We recommend having a climbing trellis, burlap-wrapped pole, and a moss pole for optimum growth and more leaves. However, some people love letting them cascade downward or horizontally on a mantle, tabletop, shelf, or desk.

When not given a place to climb, expect them to be leggy, have fewer sparsed leaves. Additionally, improper care and growing conditions will cause the same issue.

Monstera Peru care and growth requirement

These plants are easy to care for or low maintenance garden and houseplants. Beginner collectors, people without pets or children, will find them a perfect pick.

They can tolerate slightly below average humidity, require medium watering and indirect light. The rest of the care needs and growing conditions are much or less like other Monsteras.

    Huge and happy!

    Very happy with purchase! It arrived a little damaged with a few broken leaves, but has recovered quickly! It has grown 3 new leaves after only 2 weeks. The plant is very large and healthy, immediately needed repotting and could easily be sold as 5 gallon plant.

    Mona’s home

    This was my first time ordering a plant online, and I’ll admit, I was a bit nervous about it. I’ve heard of some bad experiences with the process and state of plants upon delivery, but I am beyond satisfied with the condition and delivery of “Mona”.The packaging was great. The plant could have been protected a bit more in the box, specially reinforcing the space above the plant in case it gets placed or stacked upside down. But overall mine arrived healthy and with minimal to no shipping damage.The scale was as described. It’s really healthy and what surprised me was the range of the sizes of leaves. The plant had some mature leaves already in its fenestration (holes form on the leaves) phase as well as teenage and small leaves. This is great for propagation and overall health.I will definitely consider and recommend buying plants online again, specially from this vendor.

    Exceeded my expectations beautiful!

    The plant exceeded my expectations really. That is why I decided to write a review. I previously ordered a plant from Amazon and it had root rot and didn’t make it. I decided to take a chance ordering the Plant based on other reviews, the price and I have wanted this plant for a while now. My Monstera, arrived healthy with lots of new growth about to emerge. It wasn’t overwatered or anything. I am so excited to settle it into my home. For now I am leaving it in its container it came with, I gave her some water and will let her adjust now. I really liked the secure packaging and big box it arrived in. High hopes for my Monstera. Definitely recommended getting this!

    What a beautiful specimen! I have been wanting a Monstera for over 2 years and have never been able to find one at our local shops. I took a chance ordering through Amazon knowing I could return if it arrived destroyed. But I was over the moon excited that it arrived meticulously wrapped and packaged and looks healthy and happy. Not 1 single leaf had even a scratch or tear! One leaf already has it’s gorgeous splits and there are so many baby leaves growing in. We need to transplant it in the pot still but I know he’ll be fine since he’s so healthy. Looking forward to watching him grow and thrive. Thank you American Plant Exchange, I will be purchasing more from you in the future!

    she’s beautiful

    I am in love with my monstera. It is perfectly healthy and a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be which was a pleasant surprise. The price for this plant was perfect. I bought a much smaller monstera at my local garden shop for the same price so this was a bargain! I was nervous about ordering a plant online but it came very well packaged and it was clearly handled with care.

    Absolutely astonished

    I am absolutely astonished at how well packed this was and how healthy it was when it arrived.The price was so good and it’s Amazon (so we can always return it if it’s wrong), so we really had nothing to lose by ordering this plant. And to be honest, I was half-expecting it to arrive upside-down, with broken leaves, half-dead and with soil everywhere.But nothing of the sort happened.Firstly, it arrived the right way up, largely due to being very clearly labeled and being bottom heavy so it would be tricky to invert it. You’d have to be pretty determined.Secondly, the packaging was just….astonishing. It was so well thought out. I couldn’t understand how past reviewers said hardly any soil fell out. How could that be possible?? I realized how it was possible as I unwrapped the plant. They cover the top of the pot and around the base of the stem with bubble wrap, which they tape to the pot. It’s then wrapped in plastic, like a bunch of flowers you’d find at the store. And then it’s wrapped in brown paper the same way, allowing the plant’s leaves to glimpse freedom through the top of packaging. The plastic and paper are taped to the plastic pot so they’re not budging.And all this is in a very sturdy, tall box with a little headroom so the plant isn’t smooshed but not so much that it rattles around.There was lots of new growth on the plant. No leaves were damaged in transit, which, again, is just astonishing to me.There was a residue of some kind on all of the leaves, so I just wiped them off with a clean, damp microfiber cloth (brought back childhood memories of my mum sending me to do the same for her Swiss Cheese plant!).I am just so impressed by this plant. With this experience under our belts, we will absolutely order plants from Amazon again.Now we need to see about getting a pot that actually fits…LOLAmazon, we’re on our way over again!

    Huge, lush, and healthy! I’m super happy!

    The media could not be loaded.

     I love my plant! It arrived on time and was well packaged. I could tell someone took much time and care to make sure it was packed properly. As a result none of the branches or leaves were broken or smashed. The plant itself is so much bigger than I expected. It looks super healthy and is lush and green. I wiped down the leaves and watered it as soon as it arrived. Upon inspection I did not find any gnats or bugs on the plant either. I am 100% pleased with this purchase!! Thank you so much for the care you put into this beautiful plant.

    Big ol plant survives July

    This big fella came out of his packaging in the middle of July with barely a leaf out place. I’m surprised he handled his journey so well. His leaves are big and luscious but not split leaf. Maybe they split as they get older? I don’t know. He still looks great. I also bought a baby Monstera from this same seller with an equally pleasant experience. 10/10 would buy again.

    Such a steal!

    It came while I was out of town, and I was nervous about unboxing it 5 days later. But oh my goodness he’s perfect. They did a fantastic job wrapping the nursery pot and the leaves, plus it came in a box with directional arrows to ensure it wasn’t set down wrong. The plant itself is incredibly healthy, has tons of already large established leaves, and SO much new growth. I can’t wait to see it grow to it’s full potential.

I have never had a split leaf philodendron before so I’m am very hopeful that I’ll be able to keep it healthy and thriving. A couple of the new leaves on the plant already have splits! So excited!!!

    first pic is when i first unboxed her.packaging was excellent! i’ve ordered a lot of plants online (i know some are skeptical but i’ve had great experiences!) and this one by ear was the largest and healthiest. she boasts her large split-leaves and now lays comfortably in her plant pot! as you can see i don’t have the greatest natural lighting but, she’s flourishing!!! that’s a clear sign of a healthy plant.there was some slight damage to a couple leaves, but i left them on there – it doesn’t bother me. and when i get her into her proper lighting, i’ll trim them and she will reproduce!

    So Easy

    I had one before and it was just too big and it fell over itself constantly. This is small enough where it’s not falling over from its own weight but big enough to catch attention in any room! Easy to take care of too and ready to be put out right from the unboxing. They did a great job!

    Very healthy plant, young but still a great deal

    Bought this for my wife, we already have several monstera to include variegated monstera, the maturity of the plant is offset by the size and amount of leaves we received. Yes it was an extremely juvenile plant but it was full and healthy, for the price we paid. I would buy more when they become available

    HUGE 3 ft tall specimen that came safely to my doorstep in mid July! I’m very impressed with the lack of damage to my new greenbaby. I didn’t see any crawlers in the soil and most of the leaves look very healthy. There are a couple kind of pale leaves, but i think it will perk up after some water and sunshine 🌞Again, I’m extremely impressed. Thanks for the great addition to my collection!!

    Beautiful Monstera!

    I was hesitant based on some of the reviews and photos, but took a chance since I had previously purchased a 6 inch monstera adansonii that was perfect. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed, the plant was healthy, strong and was delivered ahead of schedule. It was packaged so good, it about 7 minutes to carefully unwrap it. I would definitely recommend American Plant Exchange.

    It came to me so healthy and full. A few months later and it’s still thriving. I even repotted it and it’s still doing great and putting out new leavesUPDATE: Unfortunately my plant got root rot within the 1st year. I tried to save it. Snipped away the rot, replanted in new dirt and pot, put it outside in indirect light during our hot and humid summer. Oh yeah, and watered it less. She came to me healthy and strong so I’m sure it was my fault. Still a good product, just have to be a good plant mom, lol

    Not as described

    I have purchased several plants from amazon and have been happy with them. This particular one, is not accurately described in this posting. It’s not a 3 gallon plant as pictured/ described and the plant is unhealthy. It has yellow leaves and appears to be dying. I do not recommend buying.

  25. Reece

    Beautiful and healthy

    This was much better than expected. Very vibrant and healthy plant. However, you’ll want to be present when it’s delivered. I picked it up off the porch immediately after it was delivered and the box was hot to the touch due to being in the delivery truck. It’s possible the plant would have wilted if it had sat on my porch in the sun for much longer. Looking at all the other reviews, it seems like a gamble if the plant will arrive healthy or not. However, at $45, I think it’s well worth it. The same sized plant I ordered here would have gone for well over $100 at my local nursery.

    Second purchase. Impressed with this plant company.

    I bought one last year and it did well. Indoor winter took some toll, so I ordered again. In meantime, I put first plant outside in low sunlight. It’s reborn, though smaller leaves. And now i have the fresh new plant to join it.As it’s summer I put the new plant outside after unwrapping. Leaves unfurl and get a good start before moving indoors. I’ve learned from first plant to do conservative watering; misting is ideal.You get a great looking healthy plant, well packed and the time saved is priceless. (I’m big city high rise, no car.)But use common sense – don’t order in cold weather.

I have it near a window that gets indirect light for most of the day and I have been watering this plant alternating Sundays (to avoid drowning the poor thing). It has grown quite a bit already and the holes are forming on the palms now. Really a beautiful plant.

    This monstera really went above and beyond my expectations. It’s important to note that I ordered in late April (during the growing season and when the weather in my area is warm enough for this to ship) and price was thirty dollars at the time I ordered. I am BEYOND pleased with this plant. There are so many stems and a plethora of both small and mature leaves and some recently put out leaves as well. The adult leaves are huge and this large of a plant is a great value for $30 with 2 day shipping. I was speechless opening it.That being said, there was a lot of dust and deposit (hard water, mildew, dust build up?) on the leaves so be prepared for that. I cleaned the leaves by hand with a paper towel, some water, and neem oil. Spraying would have been faster given the size of the plant. Either way, they look fine after cleaning. I did see one little crawly inside the pot but nothing I could identify as a common pest, looked more like a millipede… but it did get squashed. Some soil shifted in transit and uncovered some roots but I easily brushed it back on top of them. Nothing here affecting the health if the plant, but wanted to note because I see all of this as more than acceptable when an item is shipping from an Amazon warehouse. You get the convenience of fast and inexpensive delivery without the long wait times and shipping costs you see at many smaller mail order nurseries.TLDR; I’d order another one of these in a heartbeat–if I had more space!

    Ok, so i was expected to get a three gallon monstera…instead I received a tiny 4inch potted plant. So kinda my fault, I should of read the print below mentioning they are sent out in this size. So I really think they should remove the 3gallon description. Nonetheless, I absolutely LOVE this plant. As small as it is, I’m sure it will grow bigger in no time at all. My plant baby is healthy, I will love her and enjoy watching her grow!! I still think she’s worth every penny!!

Some leaves are a bit curled, but I have faith that they will settle down once she is settled in her new home.If you are on the fence like I was, this is your sign to DO IT!!!

    This plant arrived in immaculate condition! I’m beyond impressed and so happy!! I was concerned being in transit for 3 days would damage the plant or cause it stress but everything was great. The way the plant was packaged exceeded my expectations. The nursery put was wrapped to keep the soil/roots safe and there was a bamboo rod keeping everything up right. The box also had a nice bright sticker stating it was a live plant. Pictures were taken immediately after unboxing the plant.

    This is a beautiful, healthy plant!!!

    It looks beautiful, is easy to care for, and arrived with a “plant warmer” attached on the inside of the pot! The best plant I’ve purchased from amazon, other than my zz plants and snake plant!!!

    Love this monstera!!

    The monstera arrived quickly and well packaged, there was one large leaf that had some damage but it was rather minor and seems otherwise healthy. There was several neon stickers on the box informing of the live plant inside which probably helped make sure the package was treated gently, just in case. There was a bamboo(?) pole in the pot itself to ensure that if the box was turned upside down, the pot wouldn’t crush the plant. While nothing of the sort happened to my plant, it’s nice that such measures were taken.

    Very Happy

    I’m really happy with my purchase! I’ve had the plant for a few weeks now and although it needed some TLC when I got it (the leaves were dirty and needed to be cleaned) I love how big it is and it seems really happy and healthy. There were two new leaves opening up when it came and there’s already another one coming up now. Overall I’m really happy with my purchase.

    Beautiful Monstrosity

    Update**one month later and I have four new leaves! So many fenestrations-still in the growing pot probably need to change soon. Watered probably twice or three times total. I mist her every other morning. The second and third pictures I took today.I ordered this April 29th and was a little worried about how it would look on the delivery date, today May 10th. It is massive. I took this photo after I wiped off the leaves with water. There’s some big curled leaves I will probably trim off but oh my! This thing is bigger than I expected and was packaged well with two bamboo sticks for support. I did notice at the bottom some fuzzy little weeds? I will investigate more on the repot but so far doesn’t seem to affect this bad boy!

    Healthy, Mature, and Beautiful – Well Packaged!

    I was not expecting this plant to be so full. It’s beautiful and more mature than I thought it would be. It arrived in a box that had a “live plant” sticker. We would definitely buy this again. It’s healthy, mature, and beautiful! It has many new leaves that have just started to unfold. Some of them are still in the process of unfolding. This plant exceeded expectations!

    Great plants , looking for more

    I was worried the plants would arrive with broken stems, dirt all over, or yellow from lack of sunshine. Both plants came in perfect condition and growing like crazy. So happy with this purchase, will order more without hesitation that are not available locally.

    Better than expected

    Came better than expected. No soil spilled, upright, and very healthy. Only downside is I’m not crazy about how the leaves are growing out, they’re a bit tangled and wonky, but I’m going to tie the stray stems to the stake to help it grow more upright.

    Pleasantly surprised!

    I wasn’t expecting much from ordering a plant online, but monsteras can be hard to find so I thought I’d give it a shot. It is beautiful! It was larger than expected, perfectly healthy, and packaged very securely. I will definitely order hard to find plants from this seller in the future.

    Box was damaged but still beautiful!

    She’s beautiful! It came about 5 days late and the box was damaged at the top. The nursery pot was a little squished with soil out and about in the box… But after repotting it with a little love she’s beautiful!

    Beautiful, healthy plant!

    A lovely, healthy plant arrived ahead of schedule! It was well packaged, but still, they’re shipping you a plant, so there’s bound to be some dirt. Open it outside if you can (or if you’re in an apartment like me, open it on a hard floor that’s easy to sweep or vacuum.)Within 24 hours of unpacking it, it’s already starting to open up towards the sun. We replanted it into a large 14” planter pot so it has lots of room to grow. It stands about 22” from the top of the soil to the tallest leaf right now.I’ll update once it establishes, but right now, this looks like one happy plant!

    I love it!

    I’m so happy!!!! Shipping took a little bit but that okay because the plant was in great condition when in arrived. It was packaged well in the box, no soil flying around it was perfect and well secured. My monstera is so big and and beautiful; it did come with some water or maybe cleaner spotted on the leaves but I have plant shine of my own and used that on it and now its so shiny and perfect. I was a little worried because about a week before I got this I received my pitcher plant I ordered on Amazon and I was less than impressed with that, so I was hoping my online plant buying luck wasn’t running out and it didn’t, I couldn’t be happier with this plant.

    Montera plant

    My plant arrived on time, so healthy, shiny green, bigger than expected. Packing was well wrapped. So in love with this plant. Thank you @AmericanPlantExchange. Highly recommend. Planning to buy more.

    Beautiful Plant

    I want to start by saying I have ordered plants before online. Never feom Amazon though. I was a little hesitant but figured I could always get a refund if the plant wasn’t well. Again, being that this was an onli e purchase, I had little to no expectations. Plus I figured it would need some nursing considering I live in PA, where winter and spring coexist. I actually got my plant 3 days earlier then expect and I am in love. I am absolutely blown away at how healthy and full this plant is. I am beyond pleased with this purchase. I will be recommending to other plant lovers.

    The Philidendron monstera tall plant-split leaf

    Beautiful plant. I really like it. I am sad one of my light green-leaf newborn plant leaf had broken off so I will put it some water and hope it grows a root. nice plant.

    Delighted to find Quality

    My monsters arrived well packaged, and delightfully quick, for both of us. Other vendors have undertaken to ship with 8-11 days travel time for even finicky ficus plants however this beauty arrived within 3 days. There was no loose soil inside piling on its leaves, which only required a light wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust. Its potbound and sending aerial roots out! I love it and am well pleased with it and the preparation for shipping was handled. I will be using this vendor alot in the future, if they continue their quality protocols. BrAvO!

    Looked great right out of the box

    Despite my cat digging it half out of its pot the day it arrived, this baby is flourishing. The packaging was protective and I’m really happy with my purchase.

    It exceded my expectations. Full, healthy, many large split leaves and many small leaves growing on the bottom as well. It was even an eco-friendly packaging, no plastic which I love! . There was only two leaves At the top that were damaged in the process but I think that is to be expected as that is more shipping and handling but the box clearly had fragile and arrow as to be placed upwards. The plant itself has over 20 large leaves though and more than 30 smaller ones so it is still beautiful for being shipped. The leaves had a lot of sprayed residue. But they were easily and carefully wiped with a bit of water. Wish I could add pics but can’t find option to add pic

    Healthy, hardy green plant!

    This plant has done very well in my entryway and I don’t have much of a green thumb. It arrived last month in great shape, and has grown quite a bit just since its “adoption” into our home. The leaves are a beautiful green color, very vibrant. I’m pleased with this purchase!

    Absolutely beautiful.

    Arrived right on time. Packaged with such care, I was really impressed. My monsters is even more beautiful than the one pictured. I am blown away. Plenty of 1st and 2nd gen leaves and tons of healthy roots. I will be ordering from this shop again soon!! I think the only bad reviews would come from people who ordered during freezing months.

    Great purchase!

    I didn’t read the reviews before purchasing my plant and honestly if I did, I probably wouldn’t have bought it. My plant came well packaged, leaves were all intact, and the soil was moist.

    Huge, healthy plant for unbeatable price

    The media could not be loaded.

     If you’re debating on getting this plant, get it. I read a ton of the reviews and was hoping that my monstera would come as big and beautiful as some of the others I saw and my expectations were beyond exceeded! She has so many huge split leaves and new growth as well, I watched 2 leaves uncurl. The packaging was amazing and it shipped in 3 days. Once I repotted her she really started to open up, I’m so close to buying another – HUGE, healthy plant for amazing price!Update: I was so pleased the first time, but I hopped on this plant again when it went down from $44 to $30. It wasn’t as tall as the first and the leaves weren’t as large or mature but it was way more full and had about 3-4 new leaves sprouting. So happy again!

    Great quality plants

    I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the plants – I figured they would arrive 3/4 dead from shipping and have to be nursed back to health. Plants arrived very healthy and have done even better after I planted them.I could not find these locally so took a flyer on mail ordering them. Glad I did.

    The 3 gallon Monstera plant arrived in far better condition than expected- she’s perfect! There is even one new leaf growing & she sits a little over 2 ft tall from the floor to tip of tallest leaf. I had to wipe some dirt/dust off of the leaves gently, but other than that she’s perfect! I’ll definitely be ordering more plants.

    Beyond Impressed!!!

    I received my plant about an hour ago. It was packaged very, very well! I unpacked it and immediately put it in a pot with soil. I spritzed it and watered it and found only one leaf a little bent. I am absolutely shocked and impressed!! I will definitely be buying again from this seller!!

    Can’t stop growing

    This is a beautiful plant with new leaves growing in every week or two. Low maintenance foe low price. It’s amazing watching the big leave split open making it’s own identity. I would like to get another one but much bigger.

  86. PinkWarriorPinkWarrior


    It was my first time to order live plant online and very skeptical and nervous. But I still give it a go even after reading some bad reviews. I received the plant yesterday earlier than I expected and I was very happy! It was properly packed, handled very meticulously and the plant is very healthy! I will buy again on this seller!

    Great plant and value!

    I was so worried about what shape this plant would arrive in, but these people are pros at shipping plants!! And this plant was larger than I was expecting with new growth shooting out! Once I repotted in a larger pot, the plant was able to hold itself up instead of leaning as long as I keep turning it in the sunlight. I love it!!

    Update: posted a horrifying review weeks ago, but can’t locate? Anywho, received wilted, and brown & black spotted plant. I figured I could revive the plant with some good old tender, love and care. After several weeks of doing everything to bring her back, something told me to check the reviews of others sho made the same purchase. BOY, I’M GLAD I DID!!!! Upon reading reviews, I noticed the same issues were stated over and over about roots being rotten. So I proceeded to check my plants roots & what do you know… ROTTEN TO THE CORE WITH MAGGOT INFESTATION. I HAD TO TOSS THE PLANT THAT I HAD TRIED TO BRING BACK!!! I believe the owners are aware of their products. Shame on you, poor integrity & ethics!!!

    Homerun affordable plant.

    She is beautiful! Reading the reviews I was expecting a hit or miss. I don’t know if they’ve been reading these reviews and been keeping up with quality now, because they’ve really knocked it out of the park!! It definitely did not come in a 3 gallon pot, but I an transferring her into one because there is know doubt she will easily thrive and grow into one soon.

    Probably the easiest plant I’ve ever maintained.

    I love having plants all over my house to bring nature inside, and this one has made a wonderful addition to my home office. It came very well packed, was easy to take out of the box. I was trepidatious about ordering a plant online, but couldn’t of been more thrilled when I opened it. The leaves give it an exotic look and I’m planning on buying another one next month. I appreciate the competitive pricing, comparable to my local farmers market but without the drive or crowds during this last stint of COVID going on. Need I say more? 😊
