    It looks like it's related to a calathea to me.

    In which case, it likes a moist atmosphere, indirect sunlight and a reasonably warm temperature, no lower than 15C. Keep moist but not soggy.

  • it looks like something i bought in the supermarket that was going for a song,It likes to be moist and misted and its growing like mad(it recovered from the shop) and I have divided it.but I d.ont know what is called,it is more variegated than yours but I have to say yours looks really happy.image

    Hello Joseph, as an aglaonema the leafs are not enough narrow, slim, no end in a point.  And as a  calathea the leafs have not the typical cleft on the stork. Maybe somewhere I see later a sample. Sorry, but at this momend I have no idea...,ThaiGer.
