Creeping Philodendron or Split leaf Philodendron

I might be wrong here. I first thought it was the Swiss Cheese Plant or Split leaf Philodendron – but the leaves do not seem to be attached anywhere.  I am convinced however, that it belongs to the same family – Araceae or Alocasia family. 

If it is the creeping one – Botanical name: Rhaphidophora decursiva    or the Split leaf one then it is the Monstera deliciosa.

  2. We have these all over the place. We call them Piñanona. They develop large white flowers (6 in +, lily shaped) and later bear edible fruit, vaguely pineapple flavor and very acidic.
