I think I have a ficus, need some help with it.

I have this tree my cousin gave me about 2 years ago, I think he said its a ficus, it has grown to about 24 inches tall, I have never prunned it, I was just reading some sites about prunning, so I will, but I'm wondering, how tall is this supposed to be? any help would be great. thanks

Maddie,

The size of your tree depends on how tall you want it to be. You can prune it now to a shorter hieght and develope a small tree or you could let it grow until it reaches the hieght you want.

I suggest you look at some of the post on ficus in the gallery, they show how drastic ficuses can be pruned.
