Hi molshtein, Welcome!

Your lovely plant is definitely an Aroid, either Philodendron or possibly Anthurium.

Thank you, PlanLadyLin!

It does look like an in between those two to me, leaves like the philodendron, but the leaf stalks are so long, more like Anthruium. Glad to have all this info!

I'm pretty sure its a Philodendron. Anthurium has a different vein pattern and the petioles are attached to the stem differently.

Sorry to add another option,I believes your plant is neither a phylo or anthurium
it is a juvenile Monstera deliciosa, a climber aroid, young ones looks nothing like mature plant.
Leaves have geniculum, so notPhylodendron
petioles attachment are amplexicaul, so not anthurium

I agree with tofitropic. This looks like a juvenile Monstera deliciosa to me.

LOL, I've had many juvenile Monstera deliciosa plants over the years and I should have recognized it right off! Split-leaf Philodendron (Monstera deliciosa)
