Hello:

We received this plant a year ago after for my Dad's passing from our church. We came home a few days after my Dad had passed and there it was, on the front porch. There was no tag telling us what type of plant it was or any care instructions. I transplanted the plant into a bigger pot and have watered it and kept it in the shade next to the front porch; it seems to have survived and done okay thus far. But I am really curious as to what type of plant it is, and if I am caring for it correctly. Can anyone help?

Thank you?

Al

Looks like Fiddle-leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata) to me.

I guess that's what it is. I looked at several photos and it looks exactly like our plant. Thank you so much for responding to my questions, and so quickly too.

Enjoy your evening.

Warmest regards,

Al Thank You!
