$ 58.00
Size: 6" Pot
Native to the tropical rainforests of Central and South America, Monstera 'Peru' is a spectacular houseplant that truly embodies the essence of exotic charm. Its deep green, glossy leaves are heavily textured, displaying a stunning pattern of ridges and valleys reminiscent of the rugged Peruvian landscape. The foliage is heart-shaped, with the mature leaves growing to a sizeable 6-8 inches in width and length, making it a striking centerpiece for any room. Monstera 'Peru' can reach a height of up to 3 feet, but with the addition of a moss pole or trellis, it has the potential to climb even higher, emulating its natural rainforest habitat. As it climbs, the plant produces aerial roots that anchor onto surfaces, creating an intriguing visual spectacle. This dynamic feature allows the plant to be versatile in its placement - it can be allowed to cascade over the edges of a shelf or encouraged to climb upwards, creating a vertical garden effect. The plant is a moderate grower, taking time to fully mature and develop its characteristic deep ridges. But patience is rewarded with a robust, lush plant that fills any space with a touch of the tropics. Monstera 'Peru' is also known to be a resilient houseplant, tolerating a range of light conditions, though it thrives best in bright, indirect sunlight. Unlike many other Monstera varieties, the 'Peru' does not produce fenestrations or holes in its leaves. Instead, it showcases a unique corrugated texture that makes it stand out from its cousins. The foliage is thick and leathery, adding a touch of boldness and drama to its overall appeal. During the warmer months, Monstera 'Peru' may surprise you with its creamy-white spathe flowers. These exotic blooms are enclosed by a hood-like spathe and give off a subtle, sweet fragrance. The flowers add an extra layer of intrigue to this already impressive houseplant. Caring for Monstera 'Peru' is straightforward. It prefers a well-draining soil mix, regular watering when the top inch of soil has dried out, and a humid environment to mimic its tropical origins. In return, this magnificent plant will reward you with a vibrant display of lush, textured foliage, bringing a slice of the rainforest right into your living space. In summary, Monstera 'Peru' is a spectacular choice for any houseplant enthusiast looking to
