Identifying a Houseplant (Oak Leaf Ivy)

I rescued this plant from a friend's father a number of years ago and have no idea what it is. It grows very long and has 3 leaves per stem, with multiple 3-leaf stems attached to the main stem. I gave it a haircut awhile ago and it wasn't happy. It is droopy right now. I am hoping to make it thrive again. Any ideas?

Some of the leaves are split like a philodendron, but I am not positive.

Hi Mary - thank you for your response. Another person suggested it was an oak leaf ivy and further image searches have confirmed that this is what it is. Thought you would like to know as well.

It appears you have been taking very good care of your plant even if you did not know the name.

Here are a couple of links that have instructions on pruning so this might be of benefit in the future. It seems they mainly recommend pinching back regularly to help maintain a nice shape.

This is very helpful, thank you! I googled like crazy once I knew what it was and believe I was not watering it in a way it likes.

I am going to repot him in a more optimal potting mix and adjust my watering plan. I am excited to see him perk up!

Super helpful thank you! I am going to repot him in a more optimal potting mix and am changing up the way I water him (I will let him dry out more in between waterings). I feel certain he will perk up in no time! I will repost as he improves.
