Any idea what kind of philodendron this is?

Not an actual philodendron,but a close cousin of sorts...what you have there is an epipremnum,aka pothos. Lots of info on the web including recently here as well...

Here is a link that might be useful: here's one now! :)

No offense, but i disagree. Notice the new leaf forming on the lead stem. I dont know much, but im pretty sure this is not a pothos. I was actually convinced it was a pothos when i was given this cutting, but now i believe the person who gave it to me that it is in fact a philodendron.

Sorry, I also think it' a Pothos, the leaf shape doesn't seem right for Philo.

It does look like a pothos, but at the same time the leaf seems to have too much texture? All the pothos I've seen have smooth leaves. I'm no expert, just wanted to state my observations.

Is there a groove in the petiole or is it round w/o a groove in it? the angle of the shot doesn't give a clear view.

I vote Pothos (Epipremnum.) From the leaf shape and aerial root nub especially.

Indeed! Good point Purp! :)

Speaking of which,it looks like an ideal candidate to train up something immediately. If a stake or something were put directly within reach of that root and said root were to anchor itself to it,the next upcoming leaves should gradually become larger and larger. :)

I vote pothos, pirate_girl,asleep_in_the_garden,and purpleinopp made some exellent points. And besides, I know a pothos when I see one. I wonder if it is the species or a variegated that neds more light. It looks very healthy

Doe look like what you guys call Pothos (i.e. Epipremnum) to me.

It looks like a non variegated pothos. Sometimes it's referred to as a Jade Pothos.

PS: just because the newest leaf doesn't look quite right doesn't mean that it's not a pothos. The other leaves definitely fit the description.
