It is a liana growing to 60 ft tall, with stems up to 1,5 in diameter, climbing by means of aerial roots which hook over tree branches. The leaves are evergreen, alternate, heart-shaped,, entire on juvenile plants, but irregularly pinnatifid on mature plants, up to 3 ft long and 18 in broad.

It is a popular very hardy houseplant with numerous cultivars.

The Epipremnum pinnatum 'Skeleton Key' is a truly interesting looking Epipremnum that is thankfully gaining popularity. These climbing Aroids start out with leaves that resemble a Pothos (Epipremnum aureum), but once allowed to climb and mature, the leaves will transform. The part of the leaf closest to the stem will stay wide and rounded, while the rest will be a narrow strip, resembling a skeleton key.
