I did a double take when I saw this .. at first glance I thought it was a light starved elephant ear then realized it wasn't .. can someone put an id to it please?

Thanks!

I may be wrong, but it looks like some type of Philodendron to me.

I'm asking about the plant in the middle and not the one in the lower right hand side. It's not a vining/climbing plant.

These are the leaves .. don't think it's philodendron. That first picture is what I saw at first kind of peripherally and that's what made me think Elephant Ear until I took a second look. If you look closely at the last picture you can see the stems have a margin.

It looks like a Philodendron to me too...there are a lot of them that don't vine or climb.
Check out Philodendron 'Xanadu', looks like a young one.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Wow! I had NO IDEA that Philodendron came in a no climb form! No idea at all! That's what it is! Thanks Ronnie and Jay. Definitely need to find one.

They are great for low light areas, really fills out a corner nicely.

I thought it kind of looked like 'Xanadu' also, but didn't want to go to far out on a limb with my guess.

Lol .. I have come to the conclusion that I don't know ANYTHING about plants. Seriously .. I had no idea Philo's were anything but the climbing ones.

That's a bit of an exaggeration, but you've come upon the first truism of knowledge (in any subject):
--- The more you know, the more you realize that there is even more that you don't know.

I've already been looking for babies .. found a few mature ones but there is no room in the greenhouse or garage .. if anyone has any babies, raise your hand!
