Someone once said it was a Homalomena, but looking up info online, I can't find a Homalomena that looks like this. Note the brown part at the bottom of each stem, which reminds me of some kind of palm. Thanks for the help!
I have a plant that has green leaves that are kinda tough and thick that has pink around it's edges. It has white markings leading into the leaf. It grows upward and leaves seem to come to a point. I got it from Home Depot. I never seen one like it. Can you HELP me Please?
I have a Blue Walking Iris plant. It has 6 leaves on it, I got it in January as a Little thing. when will it Grow more leaves and Bloom? I have already repotted it into a 6 in. Pot. One leave had turned brown and died, I removed it. the tips of the others are a little brown on the tips. What advice does anyone have for me to get this plant to Flourish and turn Glossy Green and Grow and Bloom? thanks, D. Morton

Thanks to all for your thoughts. I'm torn between the confirmation from Vestia that it is indeed a Homalomena and Growin's observation that it is a Alocasia cucullata. The main reason is the brown bottoms of the stems (anyone know the appropriate name for the brown bits??)
If your plant have sun, it will florish and you will have the suprise of the color of the
spathe and the spadice, of course if I'm right in my identification, but I'm quite sure because I had grown many of these.
The identification of the genus Homalomena is correct.
The absence of a geniculum (wrist- like structure) located where the leaf blade meets the petiole eliminates the Anthurium genus.
The absence of posterior lobes on the leaf blade eliminates Alocasia cullculata.
The "Brown bits" the OP refers to on the true stem are most likely persistent cataphyls or dried petiole sheaths.
But, I'm sorry, even if Homalomena may have an inflorescence (spathe and spadix), it's unremarkable unlike Anthurium sp.
However, I'm happy to tell you that my understanding for "brown bits" was good, even if we called them stipules or cataphylls, it change nothing, it old unecessary plant tissus, and my reference for propagation is still good. So you will be able to have a new plant without those brown things...!
