Tag said Pseudodraconitum. I googled for more info and couldn't find a thing that looked like it.

I tipped out the pot and there's a tiny bulb so I don't think it's a Philo either.
Any Ideas ? I posted over on the id forum but then thought I might have better luck here

Your plant looks much like Schismatoglottis, which is an aroid genus.

Here's a link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Hope this helps,

Thanks LariAnn
Sure looks like Schismatoglottis asperata to me.
Have you grown these before....looking for culture info.

Now that LariAnn has pointed the way, here's the eMonocot description which has a photo.
