i have that, it is a most hardy houseplant, even my wife cannot kill it. she has a black thumb and kills most plants rather quickly

i don't know the name

i only water mine when i see the leaves starting to dry out, then i soak it and then let it dry over the next 1-2 weeks, until i remember to check it

Looks like money plant. They're tough--I've seen neglected ones hang on for months! I'd water 1x-2x/wk. It doesn't matter how much water you pour into the pot if the soil is well-drained. (i.e. water doesn't accumulate inside the pot.)

Money plant seems possible, although I mostly see it as money tree, which looks a bit different. Good to hear they're hardy though!

I've got one of those too. My wife brought back a clipping from her sister-in-law's house, it had maybe four leaves on it. Two years later, it's probably about five feet long. I water it once a week, with enough that all the soil looks wet.

Yeah that seems to be it! Thanks. Also thanks for the watering advice. The greenery is a nice touch to a college apartment bedroom.
