The plant you were thinking of as arrowhead vine is Syngonium - the shape of the leaves is similar, but a different plant. Obviously, lol!

It's a tuber, this Alocasia, Kate40 - often grown outside in summer and then dug up, dried off and stored in soil in boxes over winter and restarted again the following year.

As Bamboo said, it looks like Alocasia sanderiana, or it could be the hybrid Alocasia amazonica. I think they are known as Elephant Ears or African Masks.
