Can You Help ID This Plant?

Hi Judy! This plant I received is not labeled and I am hoping you can help me ID it so I can l care for it properly. Thank you!

Hi,

 

It looks like a Balfour Aralia plant; the variety would be Polyscias-scutellaria. The distinct leaves of a Balfour Aralia plant look like leathery round dinner plates about 1″- 2″ in diameter which is how it got its nickname, the Dinner Plate Aralia. Aralias need some extra care and or they will quickly drop leaves. Here’s a picture of a “Dinner Plate” Aralia.
