I inherited this plant from an emigrating colleague about 18 months ago; I have no idea what it is, and, probably therefore, it has never been very happy! I have experimented with different levels of light, water, etc, to some of which it responded by getting ill, and at best it has been doing-- not a lot.
The attached photos show it from above, from the side, and two closeups from different angles of a sort of bulb or tuber it grows from; by way of scale, its pot is 23 cm dia. I would be very grateful if someone could identify it so I could find out what it wants.
I would be really, really grateful if someone could identify this plant.
(It is definitely not a Ficus pumila var quercifolia, nor any kind of Ficus. The leaves of my plant are not growing off a central stem or branch; as you'll see from the pictures, each leaf sprouts from a sort of bulb.)
I wonder if it might be an aroid of some sort. It has hints of Philodendron (something like 'Xanadu') and Zantedeschia.
Whatever it is, I think it looks tropical and (considering those aerial-looking roots), I suspect it might be epiphytic. ...So growing it in soil might not be to its liking; might be better grown in bark chippings/moss/etc like an epiphytic orchid. Or if you do grow it in 'soil', I'd aim for something peaty, well-drained and well-aierated. Just a thought.
