Identify this plant

It started out with the heart-shaped leaves. Stayed like that for years. I thought it was fake after about 6 years-till I pulled it out to throw away, and it had root. So I gave it a bigger pot , and new soil-then this past winter & spring-All that popped up. The elongated leaves, some with red stripes on them, still attached to the 2 heart shaped leaves. They feel like the smoothness of a candlewax, they are hardy, thick leaves, like a Magnolia tree leaf, and it hasnt done anything else lately. I am not sure how to care for it, cuz I dont know what it is-or where I got it-but I do know I have drug it around with the rest of my plants for years. It is about 7 years old now.

Cordyline fruticosa?

RE: Identify this plant

Looks like a hoya to me...hoya carnosa variegata? I'd try posting to the hoya forum and ask them if it is a hoya and how to care for it. Bob
