Philodendron bipinnatifidum more than likely...

Philodendron bipinnatifidum or Philo Selloum.

Looking at the leaf tips, I'd think it was 'Xanadu.' Any tips for distinguishing between bipinnatifidum from Xanadu? From what I've seen, the bip leaves usually end in a thin point while the X leaves usually end in a 3-point section. Is that a correct observation?

A three point section...hmmmmm...

Looking at one of my bips here next to me it's kinda fitting that exact description. There is no way that thing is a xanadu,..WAY too big! LOL

I like to think of a xanadu as a bip in miniature. :)

I agree, definitely P. bipinnatifidum. Xanadu is smaller, has more lobes and the leaf blade is more elongate. Funnily enough, neither of them grow too well here, too warm for them.

Thanks to both for setting me straight!

I believe you got 'Hope'. BipinnatifidumIt smaller cousin. It grows too big for me so I gave mine to Mike and I kept the Xanadu. It is way smaller growing. I have both Yellow and regular green.
