Hi ya'all. I must have spent 6 hours yesterday searching to identify my houseplant yesterday. I had no luck and hope you all can help me? Please let me know if you've ever seen this guy before. He's from Home Depot, bought yesterday afternoon because I liked him, and none of the similar plants had id beyond "tropical exotic foliage" or "Stump Mix". Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Bless you, that's it! I needed to know too, because I didn't know it likes lots of sunshine! Now I do and hope I'll be able to keep it happy :) Thank you so very much!!!

Just make sure that if it's something that Home Depot had indoors with the houseplants or outside under shade, you will need to adjust it gradually to being in more sun, otherwise it can sunburn.
