Okay, used to take care of houseplants for earl may garden center, so this i know. it is a schefflera plant, commonly called an umbrella plant. prone to spider mites. don't like to be left in draft places or moved around a lot!

I am a serious moron when it comes to plants, but I think this is a Rubber Tree. I was told that Schefflera were poisonous for dogs, so I don't grow them in the yard.

Schefflera have five leaves at each node; Rubber Trees have only one leaf at each node. Also, I believe the red stem is seen in Rubber Trees.

Hi, I think it's a lemon tree. My grandmother had one for many years. If you crack one of the leaves and it smells lemony, that's probably what it is! Sue

Hi,

It looks like a Hoya plant. Are the leaves rubbery? Mine loves the sun and if I let it grow long trails on it, it flowers so pretty.

5a too
