It is not recommended that you remove the aerial roots. If you prune them, you can open the plant up to disease. If possible, give them something to cling to, like a moss covered pole. This will keep them controlled and less unsightly.

What kind of plant is it? If it is a Monstara deliciosa, feel free to remove the aerial roots without worry.
