Looks like some Philodendron, cf. P. undulatum Engl., also please check cultivars of P. xanadu.

Looks close to Philodendron undulatum

Possible, …, but leaves can mislead!

I think more likely to be Philodendron xanadu Croat as per images and details herein.

Looks different from Philodendron undulatum as per

Of-course it is, Sir, but it would be a hybrid Philodendron var. Xanadu,

Both, P. xanadu and P. undulatum are South American species.

I think it remains a species now and not a hybrid as per Wikipedia.
