Marek, the plant in question is not the same as the 'glaucophyllum'-type Philo.  I have both, and this plant is physically different in many ways, leaves are more narrow, silvery color is darker (more burnished), and I have never had this develop into the larger plant that the 'glaucophyllum'-type matures to which is commonly called 'Silver Sword'.

Anyone else have an opinion?

Hi Russ,

This is Philodendron hastatum, and you're right that it is commonly known as 
Ph. glaucophyllum.

This is the Epipremnum I have as amplissimum.  Apparently that ID is
incorrect, so what is this?  This looks a bit like the Philodendron
commonly known as 'glaucophyllum', but it is decidedly different from
the plant in the photos.

I also have the Epipremnum with the more narrow, streaked leaves in
recent photos posted here that's being identified as amplissimum.  They
are not the same.

Thanks for any info,
