I won this plant at an auction about 2 years ago and don't remember what it is,

also, does anyone know if I can put a clipping of it in a viv as long as I cut it back?
Also, the blue thing in the middle is an aquaglobe(it releases water as the soil dries)

Looks like a peace lily to me. If it is you would have to separate it rather than trying to take a cutting. It would do great in a vivarium as they can grow semi-aquatic and love water. On the other hand it would get HUGE in a vivarium, I wouldn't put it in anything less than like 24" tall.

I'm not sure what type of plant that it is. I would agree with frogzilla though in that it looks like the type of plant that would need to be separated rather than take a cutting.

It could be Spathiphyllum as mentioned, but we'll have to wait for the spathe to see. Has it ever bloomed for you, or grew an inflorescence? The stripes and markings are a little strange for most of the Peace lilies I've seen.

I agree with Antone, it looks like an Aglaonema to me, mostly because of the markings. Is that shape called lanceolate? Anyways I guess it could be Dieffenbachia too (albeit a really weird coloration scheme). It looks like it might even be a Maranta, Calathea, or Ctenanthe. I've had a Marantaceae plant that looked sorta like that.

Do you have any pics of the bloom? Or more pics?

Good luck!
