Hi, I'm a little bit confused with the plant that's growing in my garden. The leaves of the young plant look exactly like the picture of angel's wing, although with much white or light yellow in them. However, they start spreading like vines and their stripes are all gone, while the leaves become lobed starting from 3 to 6. The stem is green and they do really well in the shade. The mature climbing ones have leaves like the Philodendron squamiferum but are more developed and ovate. It seems like each leaf gets divided into 3 parts where each stalk would develop from them. I'll upload the picture soon but with only a very low resolution. Thank you.
