It does look like my jungle vals, but gets no way near the same size. It seems to max out at about 5"-6".

Is there such a thing as a red val?

Help with plant id

Anyone know what this is? The top part of the leaves are a reddish brown. The leaves seem perfectly healthy, and not dying.

Looks like a Val or Sag.
