As I have indicated to others who were kind
enough to answer my query, the plant in question differs considerably from R.
decursiva. I have both R. decursiva and Epipremnum pinnatum.
As Peter Boyce has taught us, R. decursiva
needs a cool climate to flourish, so I doubt that mine, with temperatures
mainly between 23 and 29 C, will attain
2.5 m in leaf length.
Thank you very much for your input !

The juvenile and adult form rings a bell! To me it is Raphidophora
decursiva, but it has unusual short internodes. I also grow and multiply this
plant since years
(mine originally came as a big cutting from the HBV - the Boatanical
Garden of Vienna / Austria, where it grows more then seven meters high in the
tropical greenhouse). For a long time I thought it was Epipremnum pinnatum,
but from Peter Boyce I have learned the difference. Presently I do grow both,
the Raph. and the Epi., to be introduced to the European market. PS: Be
careful, the adult leaves get more then 2,5 meters long.
