I do not know…. yet it does look similar to –

According to the “A Revision of The Genus Aglaonema” –
i) cataphyll subtending petiole usually drying-persistent; petiole usually equaling or exceeding blade; leaf-base usually obtuse to subrounded – brevispathum
ii) cataphyll subtending petiole usually immediately deliquescent; petiole usually less than blade length; leaf-base subcordate to rounded – costatum

There is an image titled Aglaonema costatum ‘First Diamond’ (parent directory – which seems replica of the first pic in this thread. But, who knows if the author is correct or not!

May be you are right … Thanks for keen investigation.

Aglaonema sps for sure. Could be a variety of A.costatum sps.  Very difficult to pin point the variety in this group.

Thank you very much … I also felt that it could be A. costatum.

Thanks, …, for the id.
