Re: Holes

There isn't a purpose, its just a genetic factor they have. Plants like monstera have huge leaves and with the wind it allows the plant to pass air through the leaf without ripping it apart. My monstera has 2 and 3 foot wide leaves on it but its inside.

Can anyone say what might be the biological purpose of leaves with holes in them?  A typical example would be Monstera deliciosa.
