Help Identifying Plant?

My plant is so heavy that it keeps tipping over. It's growing some root buds all up the central stalk, but I'm not really sure what to do with it at this time. I could look up some info in the internet, but I don't even know what it is! If anybody knows what kind of plant this is, that would really help me out! Thanks!

    Looks like a caladium. A caladium (also called "elephant ear", "angel wings", etc). This plant grows from a tuber and is extremely frost-sensitive. There are countless varieties, many with red in the leaves, some with white leaves/green veins. Yours is a very plain variety, but attractive nonetheless. Go to this side and scroll down to the 7th photo and see if you think it looks like your plant.

    I believe it may be some sort of philodendron. Maybe the philodendron glorioso. Caladium plants grow from bulbs and are generally two colors, such as pink/green, deep watermelon pink/green, green/white, white/green, etc.

    Source(s): P.S. After looking at your photos again, I think your plant needs a bigger, deeper pot. May be time to re-pot. You could take one of the leaves into a nursery for identification. Still think it's a philodendon, though.
