Is this a ficus tree?

I thought I would be able to attach a picture to this posting so I hope someone is still willing to help. I will email a picture of the plant/tree in question. It isn't doing well and I haven't a clue what it is. Would some super smart person please allow me to send them a picture of my tree to see if you know what it is. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

There is a thread in the bonsai gallery entitled [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3557]Picture This! Taking Better Bonsai Pictures.[/url] Please take a few moments to review it.

Within the body of that thread there is another link that details [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3724]how to post pictures on this forum.[/url]

Its not really that difficult, let us know if you have any difficulty. I assume that this is a potted tree, if so you may want me to move it to the bonsai forum. Even if it is not a bonsai proper, pot culture is pot culture.

Lholland,


Your tree is not a Ficus, Ficus leaves grow in an alternating pattern your tree has a compound leaf. I am almost certain that it is a [url=https://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=schefflera&gbv=2]Schefflera[/url] also known as Umbrella Tree.
