    My plant has leaves that are dark green ,fleshy and round leaves on green stalks . I dont think its a cascadeing plant because everything is standing up straight. I know it doesnt require alot of water and likes the sun. Could someone tell me what this plant is called?
    Thankyou

    can you post a picture of it? You have described about 40 different succulents, a rubber tree, a young hoya, a ficus, and a number of aroids there. It is likely to be one of the above, but it's not all of them.

    If you can't post a pic, then we need more detail - how big are the leaves? what shade of green? are they a different green underneath? do they have veins? what shape are the stalks? how thick are they? what is the leaf texture - waxy, smooth, fuzzy, leathery? has it ever flowered? does the plant bleed latex or clear sap when you take off a leaf? where did you buy it? is it indoors or outdoors?

    Hi
    The leaves are an oval shape, medium green color, waxy covering with no veins present and bleed a clear sap. The stalks are strait up and thin. I dont know if the plant has ever produced flowers. I recieved the plant from a family member to be kept indoors and suggested be kept in a window with lots of sun and not to over water.
    Thankyou for your help

    Possibly a jade that isn't getting enough light??

    I agree about not enough light. It's very leggy.
    Put Jade plant into google and there are 3 good pics at the top of the page.

    Yup, Jade Plant. Get that poor muffin into some sunlight, but do it gradually so you don't lose more leaves.

    Crassula ovata, the so-celled "jade plant".
