It seems to be a Philodendron Xanadu also known as Philodendron bipinnatifidum.

Based on that its care should be similar to other Philodendrons so:

  • No direct light but would benefit from bright indirect light and possibly would tolerate lower light conditions as well.
  • Water when soil is dry. Under watering is less risky than over watering.

This is now called Thaumatophyllum bipinnatifidum as it has been reclassified, but the care is all the same. So why is Philodendron bipinnatifidum no longer considered a Philodendron?
