Hello trelane-ga

According to the excellent IMdB ( website the type
of plant Leon nurtures (and Matilda replants at the end of the movie)
is an AGLAONEMA (apparently pronounced "ag-leon-ema").

If you have any further questions regarding this topic please ask for
clarification and I will do my best to answer swiftly.
