I have a large, healthy potted Philodendron. It is producing several aerial roots. Is there something I should do?

Thanks for your comments/help.

It looks great and well cared for. Nothing to fix. Of course, it will continue to grow taller or longer and that may require either additional support or pruning. Your choice.

If the aeriel roots get in the way, you can cut them off without harm to the plant.

Thank you so very, very much. So glad you added that it would be fine to remove them.
