Plant ID! Dieffenbachia

My father in law gave me this plant. It was very root bound. I am not sure the best way to care for it. I do well with plants when given care guidelines! But I don’t even know where to start with this one. The closest pics I have come across are for Pothos, but not all of them look like this. Any help is appreciated! I want to be sure to take good care of it!
