In-Depth Care Guide

Monstera karstenianum or Monstera peru is basically a monstera plant acting like a succulent! This very rare plant is easy to care for, so why not giving it a shot! If you want one or already have one, here's more detailed information about how to take care of this beauty:

Make sure that the roots never dry out. However, do not let any water accumulate, leading to plant suffocation and death. 
Overwatering the plant may cause stress and infections. It goes the same way around: a very dry plant will grow orange/yellow leaves and lose its structural strength.

Pro tip: it is sometimes recommended to water the plant with low-chlorine and lukewarm water. Always check on the soil: don't water on a fixed time interval.
