Hi Christopher,

My first thought is Monstera, although I am at a lossto know which other than it looks like M. obliqua.

Very best

Dear Christopher ,

I think that this plant is not a Pothos.
It may be, one Scindapsus or Rhaphidophora.

Best regards ,

It looks a lot like Monstera standleyana to me. Thoughyours doesn’t appear to have the characteristic spotty variegation.
