    I think it's a poorly rubber plant - Ficus elastica.

    Assuming it's a houseplant, and that it is, in fact, a rubber plant,the above should be of interest. (sorry, you'll have to copy and paste the link.)



    Have you been watering it throughout the winter?
  • I also think it's a rubber plant.
  • thank you! I got it 2 days ago it travelled from london to manchester in a train then a car, when i got it it looked like that so i re potted it, fed and watered it , cut the dead leaves off and sprayed it. that was yesterday. When it was bought it looked alive so it went like that probably because of the journey im guessing and temperature changes
