I found this plant in a fuel station shop and it was clearly not from the North African region. Although I was on my HD to work, I couldn’t resist its beauty and found a way to take it with me to work. It looked too healthy for the 1st 2 months on my desk as shown in the 1st pic. Its the 5th month now and only the upper part is left and all the bottom leaves are falling. This plant is very special as the new stems start like a Leopard then turn gradually into Very Dark Brown then lighter brown.

    Hi Mohamed, Check out false aralia “Olympia” (Plerandra elegantissima ‘Olympia’ Syn. include Aralia elegantissima, Dizygotheca elegantissima, Schefflera elegantissima etc…). Click images from link below to enlarge. The plant from the link below is shorter than yours, but it is the same plant I think. Second link is how to care for your plant Best wishes!
