Looks like probably Monstera deliciosa to me. When they're a young plant, not a cutting, there aren't any splits in the leaves. That comes as the plant matures. Don't need to be as patient as with orchids, but still takes awhile with a new seedling.

Swiss cheese plant is the common name for it. M.adansonii is commonly called Swiss cheese vine. That's where sometimes those annoying long, hard to spell names, comes in handy.

Yes, I've read about that! They also seem to grow fairly quickly once established, and like to be trained since they are somewhat like a vine. Right?

I was researching differences between adansonii and deliciosa, and it seems the all-knowing interwebs gets them a little jumbled up and confused. I'll take what you all say here with more credibility. It's not clear based on what I've read whether the a. variety can also produce fruit?

Thanks! I should have clarified, sorry. Fruit that's edible more than once?

There are plenty of plants that produce fruit, and all fruit is edible at least once...

That is HUGE!!!

I have a baby Monstera deliciosa that I've grown from a cutting, and it's not 2 feet tall yet. I'll show it this picture and tell it that's what it's got to aim for!

Today I tasted my first fruit - amazing! Mix of banana and pineapple. I'd forgotten all about the fruit until I started trying to tame the jungle area that plant is in!
