For one thing, I saw a defintely caladium leaf in the upper right corner,
and concluded that the micholitziana-like leaf (more likely to be a Green
Velvet horticultural hybrid, IMHO) in the lower left may also belong to
another plant. The length/width ratio of the varigated leaf does not
appear quite the same as for Green Velvet and/or A. micholitziana (they
are narrower/longer).
