It looks like it's related to a calathea to me.

In which case, it likes a moist atmosphere, indirect sunlight and a reasonably warm temperature, no lower than 15C. Keep moist but not soggy.

Hello Joseph, as an aglaonema the leafs are not enough narrow, slim, no end in a point.  And as a  calathea the leafs have not the typical cleft on the stork. Maybe somewhere I see later a sample. Sorry, but at this momend I have no idea...,ThaiGer.
