hello, this plant is about six month old, and I have no clue what it is. I want to know what the name of the plant is. It is very weak and will not stand up on its own. the leaves are about the shape of a fiddle leaf philodendron but this plant is only 24 inches tall and the leaves are offset. the stem feels like a tube. The leaves are shiny and waxy. the leaves are sticking out about 3.5 inches from the main stem and the leaves are about 1 x 2 inches.

We cannot identify the plant at this time. The plant's distinctive leaves somewhat resemble those of the arrowhead vine (Syngonium spp.) and aralia ivy (Fatshedera spp.). However, it doesn't appear to be either one of those. It's likely flowers or some other additional feature will be needed for identification.
