Notes:

I inherited this plant at work, and it’s sat happily on a filing cabinet for several years, but I’d really like to give it better care. It will grow without sunlight (spent years in a kitchen with fluorescent lights), and seems drought tolerant if not watered. The leaves grow to about three inches, and the bark is rough with light lines. I thought maybe it was a type of bonsai, but have had no luck identifying it anywhere. Please help! I’d love to repot and give it the tlc it deserves!
