Our guess is Philodendron Pedatum (or a hybrid thereof?)... tried to include pictures of overall plant as well as both new and mature leaves. It is an old viney plant growing 12-15ft from a 20 galllon planter with no drainage.

Would love to know ID and tips for keeping it alive (fertilizer, etc.). Guy who gave it to us said he watered once every 7-10 days and it was pretty low-maintenance (he said it was an outdoor plant that he kept indoors). It is living in our music room now, which has a big north-facing window with lots of indirect light. When we got it the vines were all bunched up and grown together but we separated them and are trying to train them to grow around the room.

Several vines broke while moving and we put them in a vase... would like tips for cloning/propagating them. Right now the plan is to cut at 45 degree angle near a node then dip in rooting hormone and immediately place in potting soil. With luck our whole loft will be overgrown with these guys in a few months.

Thank you!
