Plant Overview

The Monstera Peru is a tropical plant originating from Southern Mexico and Central America. It is an extremely versatile species characterized by thick, waxy leaves and will breathe life into any room. This semi-epiphytic vine loves to trail and climb - we recommend placing it on a trellis or in a hanging pot where it has room to grow and explore. 

PlantX Top Tip: We recommend positioning your Monstera Peru in humid environments such as the bathroom. 

Monstera Peru - Care Practices

  • Light: Low to Medium Indirect Light. Avoid positioning in direct sunlight. 
  • Water: Never allow the soil to completely dry out before watering. Only water when the top inch of soil is dry.
  • Humidity: Enjoys moderate humidity. 
  • Temperature: Between 18°C and 27°C. Avoid exposure to temperatures below 10°C.
  • Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month using a slow-release fertilizer that is rich in magnesium. Do not fertilize during the winter months.
  • Soil: Thrives in organic, well-draining soil. 
  • Propagation: Can be propagated in water or soil using stem cuttings.
  • Repotting: Avoid repotting unless necessary. Only repot once every 2 to 3 years.
  • Cleaning Tip: Gently wipe leaves with a damp cloth to keep them clean.
  • Toxicity: Very toxic. Keep out of reach of pets and children.

Monstera Peru - Common Problems

My Monstera Peru has dry, yellowing leaves...

Your Monstera Peru probably isn’t getting enough humidity. Try using a humidifier or placing it in a room with plenty of humidity, such as the bathroom. You can also try out the pebble method. Fill a tray with pebbles and water, making sure that the water does not cover the pebbles, and place your Monstera on top of it so that it is not touching the water. As the water evaporates, it will produce moisture that will then be absorbed by your plant.

Help! I think my Monstera Peru has root rot!

If you overwater your Monstera Peru, its roots can become waterlogged, which will eventually cause the plant to rot. If you catch root rot early, you can trim the rotting roots with pruning shears. This should help your Monstera return to normal. 

Signs of Overwatering

Yellow, dropping leaves. 

Common Pests

Check for spider mites, scales, and mealybugs.

Can my Monstera Peru take full sun?

Your Monstera Peru should not be placed in direct sunlight, as this can scorch its leaves and stems. We recommend positioning your Monstera Peru near a north-facing window so that it receives what’s called “filtered light” instead of direct sunlight.

Shipping and Returns

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

We are happy to return any defective items you may have received. Please get in touch with our customer service team at info@bloomboxclub.ca and they will be more than happy to assist!

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
