I've had this plant for ages and it's always been a bushy plant. I have no idea what kind of plant it is (A clipping was given to me, passed from a few family members- no Idea who had it originally). All of a sudden, a couple months ago, it started becoming a vine. I'm trying to figure out what kind of plant it is and if this is normal. Here's a few pictures. Any help would be appreciated! :)

Looks like a variety of Syngonium ( Nephthytis) to me.

Definitely a Singonium (as Horntoad said), although there are varieties that are more compact and clumping, eventually they became a vine. I used to trim that viney thing to keep it compact. Low light environment seems to promote climbing behavior.

Yes, normal. It's S. podophyllum. I gave mine something big to climb. (Potted with a Philodendron.)
