My mom has this in her yard: is it a type of arrowhead plant?

I'll be real curious to hear what this turns out to be. It sure looks like it might be in the Araceae family but the leaves don't look quite right for Syngonium to my eyes .. maybe a Philodendron of some sort, or Anthurium?

I'm leaning more toward Anthurium or Philedendron like Lin. Has it ever bloomed?

Reminds me of Alocasia cucullata, Dwarf Hooded Elephant Ear, Dwarf Buddha's Hand.

Sure looks right to me, Jay. The narrow, extended leaf tips surely look the same.

Here is one I've had for years. It's kind of spindly because it has not been repotted in about 6 years.

Thanks, Jay. I've not heard of this plant...I might have to get myself a small division Rolling my eyes.

Betsy as you can see in the photo there are three plants in the pot. I seriously need to repot it this spring so you are welcome to one of the divisions if you want it.

Thanks for the offer, Jay; but I think I'll dig up one from Mom - don't think she would mind.
