Re: Suspected Asian Aroid

I am not that expirienced as Pete, but this looks very familiar to me. We have one huge plant in the HBV (Vienna-University / Botanical Garden), - maybe the only one in Europe, -
and I am priveleged to cut it back each year (to make use of the cuttings). I trade this plant commercially in different sizes (leaf blades up to two meters - 6 ft - long and 1 meter 
- 3 ft- wide). I once had wrongly identified it as Epipremnum pinnatum, which I do know from Australian rainforests. But finally I have learned through Peter that it only can be Raphidophora decursiva. If that is in doubt or wrong, please let me know! Thanks!
