I’ve owned for about 30 years. It has guitar pick shaped, dark green, thick, waxy leaves. they stagger up the stem. Seems to be slow growing. It will root from pieces as this is how I got mine started all those years ago. It has brown, sweet pea sized fruit. It does not like cold weather as I almost killed it this past winter. I’ve always called it a guitar pick tree. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Laura. I looked up the Natal Fig and that appears to be what I have.

    Looks like Natal fig, Triangular leaf fig, and Mistletoe fig ( Ficus natalensis subsp. leprieurii syn. Ficus triangularis).
