I think it's an Aglaonema, a kind of arum like scindapsus and pothos.

I agree with Greenlarry. I want to say Aglaonema Maria Christina.
Looks like a happy plant, and the variegation is lovely!

Correct spelling is Aglaonema. There are so many species names and hybrid crosses that it's almost impossible to accurately name one of these plants. This one looks like the tried and true 'Silver Queen ', to me. So popular for a very long time.

I actually think that this plant could benefit from more light than it's getting now. And once you feel like you're confident enough to propagate plants in a real medium, you'll have so much fun starting more plants.

Morning,

Tiff, you're in Vegas? Lucky you! Visiting or playing tables? If the latter, good luck.

Very nice Aglaonema/Chinese Evergreen,
I have to agree with Rhizo...your Aglao looks like 'Silver Queen,' although there are new species that look similar.

Have a great time, and please send a little heat this way, too..Toni

Hey friends. Thanks all for the clarification. I thought it was a chinese evergreen. But let me clarify. My mom is in Johnstown, pa. I went there to drop the kiddos off for the trip.

The plant certainly doesnt need more light... It sits in moms sunroom with has very very high indirect light. If anything it needs love and water. My mom has been neglecting the plants recently as my step dad was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. So they have been in and out of the doctors getting biopsies and what not to see what stage and type to determine treatment. Its beeen pretty stressful. Anyways...

Vegas was nothing to write home about. Hubby got food poisoning and was out of commission thurs eve and friday morn. He is slowly getting better. Feels real weak and run down. But he did muster up strength to see the town. Not our thing.. Too fast paced and we dont gamble, at all. Key west is more our style. But at least we got to see it.

I miss the kids like crazy. Ateast we did relax, and that was most important!!

so sorry to hear your hubby got sick, speedy recovery to him. Hubby and I was in LV once and it was boiling outside and when you went into the hotel or it was about 50degrees. I nearly froze we werent able to turn of the AC in our room. I had to wear a jacket inside and take it off outside. Ridiculous.

Thanks Rhizo, Polly, Larry, Toni, everyone! for your help with the plant ID!!
