Monstera karstenianum is a tropical plant and it only needs indirect light, normal watering, and organic well-draining soil. The only issue to worry about with the plant are scale bugs, including brown scales and mealybugs.
Monstera karstenianum plants thrive in organic and well-draining soil. Well-draining soil is right in the middle when it comes to drainage.
This soil is loose enough that excess water drains right on through to the drainage holes of the pot.
The worst condition from waterlogging is root rot (also known as wet feet). From sitting in too much water, the roots of the plant start to rot.
If you catch root rot early, you have a chance to save the plant. But the only way to know is to dig the plant up and examine the roots.
