Hi!
I've accumulated a good collection of houseplants so far and picked this particular one up on a whim without knowing what it was. I'd love to have a name so I can do further research. Thanks!

Welcome. Perhaps it is a Prayer plant?

Or a variety of what used to be known as Calathea but is now named Goeppertia?

After googling and looking at lots of pictures, I think your plant is Maranta leuconeura 'Kim':

That species name, kerchoviana, seems to be a synonym of leuconeura, or sub-variety thereof. Whichever is correct, it would be helpful to add that to the database here.
