Default What is the name of this plant?

I saw this plant in Lowe's but it did not have a name. Anyone know what it is?

It looks to me like it might be a Cebu blue pothos, but I'm not 100% sure.

I think you nailed it, Connor. OP, I would plant this against tree trunks or other vertical organic surfaces to get it to shingle. It is a great addition to a tank that way. That one in the picture is a really nice specimen, but I wouldn't grow it in a big pile like that :-) It is great to soften the linear look of the sides of tanks and would be awesome in a tank the size you have planned. When the lights on my tanks come on, I will try to remember to get a couple of pictures of how it grows in my tanks.

YES! That is it 100% ! Thank you!

I didn't buy it yet, but now that I know what it is, I will do some research.

Someone else mentioned Angel's Trumpet, which is highly poisonous, but it was not that. (I think they deleted their comment).

I read that it is originally from the Philippines, but can now be found in South America and other places. Since I am doing a thing about invasive animals, this would work out well.

Thank you!

Thanks, I think that is a good idea. I am trying to find Marcgravia, which I prefer, but, no one seems to have any.

There's room for both :-) Marcgravia is more of a true shingler where the leaves grow flat against whatever it is shingling on. Blue Cebu grows up vertical surfaces, but the leaves are on a petiole and they hang off of whatever they are clinging to, but in an alternate, organized pattern. I really like it.

Raphidophora species like R cryptantha and korthalsii are really nice shingling Aroids.
