For comparison:





It may be Weeping Podocarpus (Afrocarpus gracilior) but I'm still not sure the leaves are a match for it either.





The leaves of the plant in your photo do resemble those of Banana-leaf Ficus (Ficus maclellandii 'Alii')

Hi Lin ,

Appreciate your insight on the Podocarpus... the (seeming) knowledgeable fellow at the nursery said it was a Buddhist Pine but on further inspection, the pot was marked 'Podocarpus STD'. I now believe it's a 'Weeping Podocarpus (Afrocarpus gracilior)' based on your suggestion and further images researched so I've put in a proposal to move my image to (hopefully) the right location!

Your Buddhist Pine and Banana-Leaf Ficus are lovely by the way!

Cheers.

Haloa, you are welcome. I'm sure your proposal to move the photo to the Weeping Podocarpus entry will be approved by a database administrator soon and you will get a system notification once it's been done.
