Monstera karstenianum is a very rare but fast-growing plant with spectacularly puckered, iridescent leaves. The stunning bi-colored jade leaves are unusually rigid and generally spaced at 2” intervals when totem grown.
Monstera sp. Peru is also widely known as Monstera karstenianum but that is not a scientifically accepted name. It is thought to be a kind of M. Pinnatipartita. It's a slow but steady grower that's easy to care for and thrives in mild climates with filtered sunlight (70-85%). A hardy aroid sought for its shiny, puckered dark green leaves spaced approximately 2” apart. Let it trail down or give it a burlap pole to climb up.
