Any ideas?

RE: ??? Not sure what this is

Hi Fandog, welcome to GardenWeb!

I have no idea (though I'm sure somebody will,) except that it looks succulent-ish.

May I ask, what's the potato thing in the pot? Curiosity about that is why I'm here babbling to begin with.

Do you think your jade plant is getting enough light?

RE: ??? Not sure what this is

at first look i thought it was a pepperomia... but then the trunk made me think... eh, not so much.

Its growing tip and waxy leaves remind me of some sort of ficus or fig.?

RE: ??? Not sure what this is

OK, I DID say welcome to Fandog twice. For some reason your name didn't change colors (visited link.) Should have checked when it felt familiar, not trying to welcome you to death!

RE: ??? Not sure what this is

I think that's some kind of ficus. Hubby's Mom bought him a bonsai style ficus (with a caudex... not sure how they force a ficus to make a caudex) that looks similar to yours.


RE: ??? Not sure what this is

Just a guess but I'm thinking possibly ficus deltoidea.

The leaves don't have a delta shape in the pic but perhaps it's still early and in time will look more like the ones in the image search I conducted a minute ago.

Could be wrong....but for now that's my guess. :)
