I am not at all trained in identifying plants. I've tried the tips from the question: How do you identify a plant?, but I have no idea what kind of group or family this plant belongs to, so starting a search is difficult. Google Image Search yields no results.

So my question is: can somebody identify this plant? It grows quite well in a tropical climate is all that I can say about it. And it measures about 70cm in height.

Just a wild guess, but I would guess a Pilidendron, maybe Philodendron martianum.
