Hi everyone,
I've had this houseplant for about 9 years. I've pretty much given up on ID of this plant until now. The pot the plant is in is stuffed and the soil is very tight around the roots and needs to be repotted. This plant seems to love direct sun and doesn't mind being in a cold New York Ciry winter window. Could someone please help me ID this?

Thx-Denise

The pictures are a bit small which makes it difficult to see detail but perhaps a Euphorbia of some kind.

I'm pretty sure it's an Euphorbia. Maybe Euphorbia decaryi var. spirosticha http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/57975/
