I got this plant from some of my friends who moved to Colorado. It is currently my only plant not flourishing. No new leaves growing. It seems otherwise quite healthy. I have no idea what it is. Can someone please tell me so I can research better how to care for it please. Thank you.

Hi Bmsluite, Welcome!

Your plant is a Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata)

Thank you very much. I would have never figured it out on my own.

Your Fiddle-leafed Fig would benefit from more light. Keep it as close to a sunny window as possible. Water it as soon as the top half-inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Give it just enough water so that the top half-inch dries again in about a week. Don't repot it.

This is a plant that grows in spurts, often going several months or more without putting out new leaves.
