Mystery Plant

I am a caregiver for a 93 year old sweet lady, she was given this plant and would like to know what it is can you help

Hi Elizabeth,

Sorry to be so long in getting back to you, but I am a senior citizen and have had the flu. It seems to be taking a long time to recover. I am trying to answer all the questions that piled up while I was ill as quickly as possible.

It looks like a variegated ficus benjamin’s (weeping fig). You can read all my care tips in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. The picture is of the solid green tree variety but the care is the same.

Here is a picture of a variegated ficus so you can compare it to your plant.

Again I am sorry to have taken such a long time in getting back to you.

Best wishes,
