Looks like Philodendron bipinnafitum? I hope I spelled it right.

I don't offhand but if you do a Google search, you should come up with some. I would also ask over in the Tropicals forum. They would know more than me.

It does resemble Tree Philodendron (Philodendron bipinnatifidum) but for some reason the leaves don't look right to my eyes. The leaves look more like Tree Philodendron (Philodendron 'Evansii')

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable about Aroids/Philodendrons will see this post and pop in with some assistance!

Had one in the front yard in central Florida -- we called it a Split Leaf Philodendron -- it was large enough that white lights covered it at Christmas !

Looks to be in good condition for indoors!

They like lots of sunlight, if can give more. Be careful about direct sunlight, if it's hot out, after being indoors.

I grow and hybridize a LOT of Philodendrons in the group where your plant belongs (the Meconostigmas) and I have found that IDing them is difficult if they are grown indoors because the leaf shapes and petioles do not look the same as they do when grown outdoors. To add to the confusion, P. bipinnatifidum is highly variable and may be a complex of hybrids with leaf shapes varying from very deeply divided to mildly divided. A definitive ID in this case requires a study of the blooms.

As for P. x evansii (which is a known hybrid of P. speciosum and P. bipinnatifidum), the mature outdoor leaves on that plant are much larger than yours and longer relative to the width of the leaf. The plant also has some pinkish coloration on the sheath that surrounds the unemerged leaf. Yours does not have the pinkish coloration so to me that would rule out P. x evansii.
