The Split Leaf Monstera deliciosa is a popular and easy-care houseplant. These plants have large, leathery, heart-shaped leaves that develop splits from the leaf edges to the center veins called "cuts." In nature, the Monstera deliciosa is a climbing vine that can grow to be 70 feet tall, growing high into the rainforest canopy. The cuts that develop in the leaves allow the wind to pass through the large leaves without tearing them. In addition to being a gorgeous addition to your space, this plant is also known for its excellent air-purifying capabilities.
