    Been wondering for sometime now what this plant is. Thought maybe it was a money tree plant, but it definitely do not think that it is. This one has three distinct trunks if you want to call them that, very sturdy, shiny green leaves, recently it has from one stalk grown longer side shoots that have what almost appear to be the beginning of some flowers or something. I took an upclose photo of them. Its been like this for over a week now and I was hoping that they were going to open, but no such luck yet, at the very tip of them, they are a creamy white colour.

    Anyone have any ideas what it is...greatly appreciated...thanks

    Thanks for those names, definitely very similar to
    the Schefflera ('renegade') and it could possibly be that although I'm wondering and I should have described earlier as well that the leaves are staggered or offset from on another, from what I'm seeing in pics of the Schefflera variety of plants they seems to all line up with one another, I don't know the correct word for that.
