Hi, I was given this plant around 10 years ago and it's always thrived but lately it's been getting more brown leaves that drop off. I've repotted it and seen that it was standing in water so now I'm not watering it for a short while. I'd love to look up the proper care for it but can't seem to find its name anywhere. Does anyone know what type of plant it is please? Many thanks

The leaves, but not the stems, remind me of bamboo.

The leaves appear to be serrated.

I can't tell if they're serrated or rippled. I thought Ficus 'Alii' at first but that doesn't seem right. Can we get more pictures? It's a lovely plant, whatever it is. Thumbs up

Looks like a bamboo palm maybe ? Some kind of Chamaedorea ?

It reminds me of Weeping Podocarpus:
