It features corky aerial roots and big divided or perforated leaves that look like they have holes or cuts in them, giving rise to two of its other common names: Swiss cheese plant and split-leaf philodendron (while monstera is not a type of philodendron, it is closely related to them). Though there are many varieties of Monstera, the best-known variety is Monstera Deliciosa.
