4" Monstera obliqua sp. Peru


 Bright indirect light

 Allow soil to dry almost completely between watering


Monstera obliqua is very similar to Monstera adansonii, except that this species has large fenestrations and grows a bit slower.  This is the form found in areas of Peru.

We highly recommend allowing your Monstera obliqua to climb, so provide it with a coco pole or other support structure.  As it climbs higher, the leaves will become larger and the fenestrations greatly pronounced.

Monstera obliqua care:

This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter.  Allow the soil to dry out almost completely before watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water.  Monstera obliqua prefers higher than average humidity for optimal growth.  Provide your plant with plenty of bright indirect light.

Additional information:

Monstera, also referred to as "Swiss Cheese Plant", are a type of aroid native to many different countries in Latin America. Monstera can be found growing in its natural habitat in Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, etc.

In the wild, Monstera have a variety of growth habits. They can climb or spread as ground cover. If they are allowed to climb, Monstera leaves will become much larger and begin to fenestrate. They are semi-epiphytic.

Monstera can grow in low indirect light but prefer medium to bright indirect light. If grown in low light conditions their growth will slow.

They tend to be easy to care for and make a great addition to any houseplant collection.

Great service

My plant arrived in perfect condition and is sitting right next to the humidifier.
Strongly recommend the shop. Healthy and well packed plants.

This plant has been thriving more than expected and pushed out new growth from under the soil. I've trimmed some of the runners to restick in the pot to make it more bushy. Highly recommended.

This plant has been on my wishlist for a long time. I have bought from Canopy a few times in the past, but was a little nervouse because I bought the last Obliqua Peru in stock at the time so was not sure what to expect. Well, have no fear buying the last plant - because she is perfect! She even had a brand new leaf that was ready to unfurl. Canopy's shipping is top notch and I can always feel confident my plants will arrive in great shape. Love supporting this small business.

Gorgeous, healthy plant, as always!

Canopy is a fav shop to buy from. The plants are always healthy, well packaged and protected, and a great plant for the price, not a few scraggly branches like some shops. Peru was a bucket list plant for me and I can't wait to watch her take off!
