  • $\begingroup$ I have been looking at this plant for a while now and the colour has been consistent with leaves. It might be possible that they are juvenile leaves and are taking their time. Any ideas with what the name of this plant is? $\endgroup$ – vamsidhar muthireddy May 28 '18 at 9:24
  • $\begingroup$ Do you have any images of the flowers of this plant, or if not, would you know how the flowers might look like? This will help, thanks. $\endgroup$ – Taimur May 28 '18 at 19:40

So after searching a bit, I think this plant is of the genus Ficus:


I am still unaware of the species but the nearest I could find was Ficus retusa. I hope I have been of help.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, I found that the pictures that I attached might belong to Ficus Benjamina. It is grown as ornamental plant where I live. $\endgroup$ – vamsidhar muthireddy May 28 '18 at 23:09
  • $\begingroup$ @vamsidharmuthireddy great, if you are certain of it, you can answer your own question then. I am glad I was of help. $\endgroup$ – Taimur May 28 '18 at 23:32

With the Help from Taimur in above answer, I was able to deduce that the picture that I posted belongs to Ficus Benjamina.
