I have had no luck identifying this plant, it was given to me a few months ago and I never gave much thought to it. But now I'm curious about it. Using google and the plant database here has come up with nothing. The leaves fall off in much the same way as a palm tree does, leaving sort of spines where the old leaves were all up the base. It did flower for a short time, I don't have a picture of it, but it resembled a small, short peace lily that didn't go above the leaves. Any thoughts on what it is?

It looks like an Aglaonema, but I don't know which kind. Try this site http://www.tropicopia.com/tropicopia/house-plant/gallery-01....

That would be it! Thanks! But I do wonder why mine seems to look more like it wants to be a tree than a bushy plant. At leas now I can do some research on it!

Happy to suggest. Yours is just older, taller. Looks great!

You can cut them and stick the cut-off part back in the pot if you'd like to see more leaves below. The stump will grow 1 or more new tops to replace the one you removed, and sometimes new stems also come from the roots after a prune. If interested, I'd do them over time, so it never has to have a time when it looks drastically pruned.
