Can a ripped leaf repair itself?
Unlike humans who have an immune system in them that can repair their cuts and scars, plants cannot repair themselves. Because they don't contain an immune system as a human does. What is this? Plants cannot repair the damaged leaves but they have the ability to produce new leaves in place of older leaves.
Can broken plants heal?
Unfortunately, there is often nothing you can do to repair crushed plant stems. If the crushed area is small and the damage is minimal, try the tape and splint method. For badly crushed stems, however, this is not likely to work.
What do you do with ripped monstera leaves?
If so, wait until the leaf has unfurled before trimming. These rips and tears won't really heal up and go away, they will remain as scars on the leaves. If a chunk of your leaf has ripped but is still hanging on, you can snip off the ripped part and the remaining part of the leaf will just scab over and be ok.
