    Hi,

    when you break a leaf off what colour is the sap? Also where, geographically, are you and the plant?

        :-)

        My first & strongest instinct is that it may be a Euphorbia species based on the leaf shape, pattern of leaf scars and sap colour. But it could also possibly be a member of the Fig genus - Ficus... Unfortunately without flowers I cannot get you further than that I'm afraid.

        Luckily Euphorbia flowers are odd to say the least and no other genera has anything quite like them... Fig flowers are also very distinctive - small round structures, most likely coming directly off the main branch of the plant.

         

        Sorry I couldn't help you further...

         

        Cheers,

        Jen

            That's great! :-) Glad you found it. The google images look a good match for your plant and the flowers look pretty spectacular too so I hope it flowers for you sometime... :-)

            Have a lovely day too...

            Cheers,

            Jen
