Identifying a Houseplant? (Money Tree)

Identifying a Houseplant - tall single stemmed plant with long lance shaped leavesI found this on the side of the road. I have no idea what kind of plant it is. Possibly a money tree? Seriously I have no idea. Would love your input. Thank you!

This definitely looks to me to be some sort of tree. It might even be an oak. THis great horticultural site gives insight into what it could be by comparing the leaf structure.

bluejack oak - www.ag.auburn.edu/.../91.html
does the leaf have a bluish tint? it's hard to tell in the photo. If it is this, it can be as high as 30'

Laurel oak - www.ag.auburn.edu/.../93.html
can grow 60' to 70'

Fevertree - www.ag.auburn.edu/.../353.html if it was this one, it would have nice pink flowers towareds may - june

It would be clearer if we saw it's behaviour throughout the year - mainly, does it flower? Fruit?

Nope. It was just left in the flower pot near a trash can. Its terribly cold outside and i dont think it would survive the harsh winter we have been having.

I have touched it and no itch or sting.

Hi, looks like a schefflera plant.

That is a money tree. I have several. They love filtered light, and let the soil dry out before you water. They do shed leaves, but grow a lovely tree indoors.

Could this be a sumac? Does it turn red in the winter? If so, you might want to take it to your local extension service to identify it. There are many sumacs that are poisonous.

I touched it and have not had any sort of reaction. It is a very cold winter here and there has been no change in color. It is growing quite fast though

Do you have to do the braiding of the trunk/stem yourself? Or does it do it on its own? Because as of now mine is just a single trunk/stem.

This is definitely a money tree. It just hasn't been "braided" like you would see/buy in the stores
