It looks like a house plant. Possibly a Begonia Rex but someone else will be able to identify it for certain.

One of the rhizomatous Begonias, but which one is beyond my expertise. Most have very similar requirements: bright indirect light or filtered sun, a bit of drought between soakings, an bit of humidity, and frequent, light feedings, with a low phosphate food.

It's a Maple leaf Begonia, or Begonia Cleopatra, and it's a houseplant. Baby bio will make a reasonable feed for it, and it obviously likes its situation, as its growing so well.

You don't have to split it, but you can if you want at repotting time.
