Description

We love the Monstera ‘Peru’ for it’s almost prehistoric and reptilian appearance! The texture of the leaves is truly spectacular and you won’t be able to keep yourself from running your fingers over it’s bumpy foliage. If you can provide bright indirect light, above-average humidity and a regular watering schedule this plant will reward you with fast growth and large leaves that are sure to stand out in your collection 

Extra large specimens available in 6-inch nursery pot.
