Reminds me of Dumb Cane (Dieffenbachia seguine)

Next question. I only have a 8"stem with the one leaf. Is there a way to root it into a new plant or do I need more to work with in order to propagate it? Thank you all in advising me on this. I tip my hat to you.
Happy Gardening :-)

I'd think an 8 inch stem would be plenty enough to take root.

Yes, if you mean actual stem, not just petiole.
