So I found this little plant at Home Depot today and as usual it was a generic label. If anyone knows what this could be please let me know because I have almost no idea.

I hope it is just a DC like you think it is. After looking around for a while I thought it might be one of the two but I was still unsure. Thanks I guess I will just see where it goes and post pictures when it is bigger.

For the price you can't go wrong regardless what it is. they're all great plants.
I'm not as vested as most people on the forum but tend to disagree that it's DC, leaves don't seem to be as elongated and petiole also looks different, also underside of leaf looks chalky, that might have just been lighting when picture was taken.
Hear are a few pics of a DC, use your judgement.

Mature plant:


Petiole:


Young plant:

Mine doesn't have any red spots just green and no chalky petiole or anything. It did put out lots of pups though. I think it has 5 at the moment.

Is it possible to post some current pictures, your plant should have matured quite a bit by now and may display features not seen in original post.
The blood spots are predominate in pups of certain plants, posts suggest that it's a result of UV, but not necessarily displayed on all said varieties. There are a lot of good discussions on blood spots out there.
