Welcome!

Its a type of Euphorbia.

Euphorbia x japonica, a hybrid between Euphorbia bupleurifolia and E. susannae. It can get pretty big (wide) with enough time and space:



The parents, by way of illustration, to show the differences.



Provide strong light. If it's an indoor plant, a position right by your sunniest window would be ideal. The current perch looks good. Use soil with excellent drainage (say 50% pumice, perlite, or equivalent). Avoid deep pots. Water well when the soil is dry or nearly dry.

I think "the current perch" is Ellajones' hand. Smiling

Thank you for the clarifying ID. I was torn between E. x japonica and E. bupleurifolia so decided to quit while I was ahead.

I kinda like the order of the replies, from least specific to most specific... Smiling The irony is that the database picture we have for that plant is actually filed on the generic Euphorbia page.
