I bought a really neat plant at our local Swap Meet in Sierra Vista, AZ. It looks like a plumeria with the leaves in clusters at the top of the branches, but the leaves are thick, smooth, with prominent veins. The trunk is gray, but the stems/branches are green. It is currently 4ft tall. I can't seem to get the pictures to upload.
SOLVED: House plant that looks like a plumeria, but isn't.
I bought this plant at our local swap meet. I have no idea what it is. It looks like a plumeria but the leaves thicker. Any ideas?
Thank you Growin.....It is an african milkweed. I transplanted it and have started feeding it miraclegrow. I figured it is a good all around feed so it should perk up....

Looks like, what I know as, Synadenium which is now classified as Euphorbia. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher[common]=&searcher[family]=&searcher[genus]=synadenium&searcher[species]=&searcher[cultivar]=&searcher[hybridizer]=&searcher[grex]=&search_prefs[blank_cultivar]=&search_prefs[sort_by]=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search
The plant looks like is chlorotic and may need a bit of feeding or it may have spider-mites which is giving it a yellowish colour.
