Hi: Just received this as a gift. Need to identify because I have a new kittie.
Your plant looks like a type of Aralia. Aralia Plants are poisonous houseplants with a level #2 toxicity. All parts of an Aralia contain saponins which cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Please keep your kittie far away from this plant! You can read more about Aralias in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
