Hi,

I found this plant abandoned in a hallway and I'm wondering if anyone can identify it. I am a complete novice so any info would be appreciated.

Is the powder on it a protective coating or mildew?

I'm in NYC and I am keeping it on this ledge that only gets about an hour of direct light and 11 hours of indirect light.

Thanks!

Welcome!

Its a Euphorbia, probably trigona. It a full sun plant so may not be happy with only indirect sun. Let the soil dry before watering.

I can't tell what the other stuff you see might be. Maybe add a close-up?
