Adding lots of houseplants lately and so many without tags stump me.

Reminds me a lot of one I used to have, Homalomena 'Emerald Gem'

My leaves don't seem as deeply 'pleated' though.

Anthurium Shrug!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

It also looks like a monstera deliciosa before it starts to split.

I agree with Ronnie - this looks like a grouping of juvenile M. deliciosa plants, tho many aroids look similar in this young phase. Will have to wait until it grows some and it starts to develop some more mature foliage to get a firmer ID.

I used to be able to answer these questions instantly via google, but I don't know what has happened. The petioles visible in the picture clearly have genicula but the combos of words I would have used to find info about whether or not Homalomena petioles have genicula no longer yields useful results, a trend I'm noticing when trying to do any kind of research lately. Finding synonyms/accepted names of plants, plant patents, anatomy &/or natural habitat info, has become virtually impossible. Anyway, Monstera petioles do have genicula. Someone who has more time or better search techniques in this new era of click-bait-only search results can hopefully answer the question about whether or not the presence of them eliminates Homalomena or not.

Genicula are rare in Homalomena. http://araceae.e-monocot.org/t... The referenced species (H. disticha) should probably be Homalomena geniculata which is a synonym of Homalomena punctulata

I'm not seeing what you are referring to as genicula in any of the pictures shown.

what about the petiole? on the last pic I see 'the flanges' at the bottom of the petiole where it is attached to stem - are those characteristic to Monstera? and what are they called?

there was a post for a very similar looking plant - was decided it was juvie Monstera.

At the bottom of the 1st pic, this look like a geniculum to my amateur eye.
