    Hi
    I got this plant from a friend a couple of years ago. It was in a small pot and it stayed there until this February, when I decided to move it into a bigger pot and it suddenly started to grow. Now it has 2-3 beautiful little flowers and I'm trying to find out what kind of plant it is, so I can care for it properly. Is it an outdoor or indoor plant? Should I move it to the garden? It seems to be evergreen, it never lost leaves.
    Thank you so much for helping with this.

    Solanum possibly S. pseudocapsicum.

    Like many nightshades, potato, tomato, you shouldn't eat the leaves.
    Ripe fruit is generally harmless.
