That plant is one of many Syngonium cultivars that exist today. They are very hardy plants, and grow very well in terrariums. You will probably have to trim it from time to time... but it isn't that bad, and you can make more plants from the cuttings :D . It isn't a Pothos or Philodendron, but is closely related to the philos.

Yep, I definitely agree with the other guys on this...Syngonium (arrow-head plant). The normaal form does grow very tall and very fast! I met the ladies of Quality Captives yesterday to pick up and trade frogs and recieved a miniature syngonium!! I've always loved these plants for their awesome foliage so I'm very excited about having one that stays small and doesn't bust through the top of the viv.

so

its an arrow plant that will need trimming often, and will do well in a vivarium. I guess this is the perfect plant for a beginner because it growes well and has minimal requirements. Perfect!
