Hi, my Granny has a plant and none of us know what it is! It is about 40cm tall and 30cm wide, it is in a small pot on her porch and is thriving. Here is a picture of some of the leaves if any of you can help I would be SO SO gratfeul!.

Yes, this looks like Hoya compacta. aka Hindu rope plant http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/168164/

Thanks! Although my Granny's plant doesn't trail it is upright - is this usual?

Hmmm, I'm not quite sure. Can you post a picture of the whole plant?

A picture of the whole plant would be helpful. The small sample above looks like a Ficus.

I agree with Tom...it looks like Ficus benjamina 'Curly"

I'll 3rd the Ficus

My first thought was with Tim, but the "growing upright" made me reassess that.

When I've seen them they are strange growing. Upright mostly like a regular Ficus benjamina. I've seen them for sale as multiple rooted cuttings instead of a single stem.

Yeah, I agree with all of you. The growing upright pretty much threw Hoya out of my mind as well. I'm hoping that lacylarsen can post a pic. of the full plant.
