Good morning!

I'm helping someone identify this houseplant, and I figured that this would be an easy one

for you GardenWebbers! ;-) At a glance, I thought it looked like a Dieffenbachia.....

Thank you very much!

Josh, not 100% certain, but it looks like Ctenanthe.

Ctenanthe is in the Marantaceae Family, closely related to Calathea and Stromanthe.

How long are leaves? Toni

Josh, check Ctenanthe lubbersiana and C. lubbersiana.

Here's mine.
