What Type of Plant Do I Have

I have a plant that was given to me, but I have no clue what it is. There are no flowers as of yet. The leaves are a medium to light green and some have dark red spots, some have white spots, and some have green spots. I did take pics of this plant.

Prayer Plant Help

My grandma gave me a prayer plant last year. It was in a small container with four other plants.  I transferred it into a 10-inch terra cotta pot with stones on the bottom for drainage. It has two large branches with many huge leaves. They’re about 1 1/2 feet long. The tops are very heavy and the base is very small and weak,  held up by a stick. It’s also growing some weird ‘legs’. They’re very skinny and about 6 inches long, and at the end of each one they gave a green hook that looks like a claw. They’re green, so they’re alive. I’m not so sure what to do.  I looked at other prayer plant pictures and was shocked to see mine looked nothing like them.  I was thinking about cutting some of the branches but am afraid it’ll die.

We can better identify the problem or plant with a picture.

There are several reasons for this happening, but under watering is the most common. This article has other reasons this can happen as well:

I have a prayer plant calathea that is getting very large and thick. Is it ok to split the root to put in separate pots?

Yes, this is fine and can be done during spring repotting. You can also take summer cuttings of the plant to make more.
