I received an email from Jeff in Houston, TX, asking if I could identify this 15 yr old houseplant. He says the leaves are dark green and crinkley, are thick, and 12-18" long. Can anyone put a name on this plant? Ken

Definitely Anthurium. Looks like Schlechtendalii

One of the Birds Nest Anthuriums, but the difference between some of them is so small they can be difficult to ID down to species level.

Thanks, everyone. I think Jeff has the information he needs to label his plant.
