I believe that is an Aglaonema, possibly this one:

I think it is a Peace Lily Peace Lilies (Spathiphyllum)
Looks like the pot may cause the roots to remain too wet. Is there a drainage hole in the pot? If not, re-pot into a new pot with a drainage hole. Peace Lily does not like to be over watered; probably okay to water about once a week, depending on the climate inside your home.

Sorry; cross posted.

I've never seen a peace lily with mottled foliage like that. Something I'd like though Smiling

My suggestion was probably incorrect. Sticking tongue out
But if you want a pretty Peace Lily, check this one:

Looks like A. commutatum to me. If it didn't come with a cultivar name, I'd hesitate to attach one. 'Emerald Beauty' looks like the species to me.

I agree with Neil, it looks like Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema commutatum) to me too. I've cropped a few photo's of my plant for comparison showing the leaves and stems/stalk:

Thank You everyone for the Quick Response. I guess its either Chinese Evergreen or Emerald Beauty. I tip my hat to you.
What do I feed it ? Any supplements or something of that sort ?

Regards,
Habshan

Happy to suggest. I think what I said may have been confusing &/or incomplete.

The link I put goes to the species, A. commutatum. The cultivar 'Emerald Beauty' is a variant of that. To call it 'Emerald Beauty' without having purchased it with a label that says that, or comparing it to the patented description of how the cultivar is different from the plain species, would be a mistake, IMO. Without evidence to support that it differs from the species in some way, stopping the ID at that point, without a more specific cultivar name attached, avoids a potential mistake. The entry for 'Emerald Beauty' in the database here does not include a species. If it did, the full name would be written like this:
Aglaonema commutatum 'Emerald Beauty'
(The elements are: capitalized genus name, lower case species name, capitalized cultivar name enclosed in apostrophes.)

Again, does that pot have a drainage hole? Since it doesn't have a saucer underneath it, I'm inclined to think it doesn't. The database entry says that this plant requires excellent drainage in containers.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
