Monstera Pertusum is a popular foliage plant easily recognized by its large glossy leaves that are dissected with deep splits and perforated with oblong holes. grows by climbing on trees; providing it something to climb on is necessary inside so that the plant can support itself. In a wet enough atmosphere, the plant will readily attach itself to anything it finds; in a normal apartment atmosphere however, it will not, and will have to be manually fixed. Aerial roots that are not actively used by the plant to support itself may be cut.
