Need help identifying this plant, seems pretty fussy and not sure how to keep it alive.

Bonella writes: I believe this is probably a young philadendron. (Indoor houseplant) Don't overwater and keep in regular room lighting and temperature. You will know if it begins making runners. I believe the plant probably should be lifted and a bit more potting soil added to the planter. Also, if it is a young Elephant Ear or Caladium as the other suggested, you will be able to "look" at the root ball and if it is a large bulb with roots running from the ball, you will be assured it is a Caladium (elephant ear or decorative Caladium) which will allow you to transplant to shady area in your garden after the last frost this spring. Of course, be sure and bring in this fall BEFORE first frost. Whether a philadendron or Caladium it should be shady area in garden or if kept as houseplant regular lighting and NOT overwatered.

Antonio_Reis writes: Hello hettihuls. We think this is some sort of young elephant's ear (Alocasia or Colocasia spp. or cvs.). Possibly also a young caladium or athyrium. Hope this helps! Posted: 9:26 am on December 5th
