I think this is a form or species of Philodendron but as there are well over 700 natural species and as many again various hybrids exact identification may require a botanical specialist in this genera. I do think though that Philodendron is on the right lines, family Araceae. Dioon 11

This is a species of Syngonium. I know many of the species are native to Brazil or South America. Beautiful Photo!

Syngonium and Philodendron are in the same family - Araceae or Aroid family. They look very similar.

I have a Syngonium variety that has pink leaves. It is in a 5 galllon pot in my back yard under a just loves that spot - and has been in that same spot for over five years without ever being moved.
