Hello, I found a plant in a pot set out for garbage pick-up on the street a few weeks ago, and I am having trouble identifying it online, which surprises me because I think it has very distinctive large three-lobed leaves. They're shaped a bit like an arrow with the point towards the trunk; each leaf has a longer middle lobe with two fatter side-lobes. The veins are a pale colour, sort of yellow. The trunk is very woody.

It was found in a rather small pot and it seems to be suffering from something that's making its leaves dry up and curl in from the tip (until I find out what it is, I can't really say if it's too much water, too little, something to do with light, etc.). It was completely dry when I found it, so I watered it and put it on our sunny balcony, and it seems to be putting out new growth (though the older leaves are still curling up).

I'd love to hear any suggestions both about the plant and any good sites you've found that let you identify a plant or flower by inserting or removing specific characteristics to narrow down the possibilities (i.e., leaf-shape, colour, position of flower, size, alternating leaves). Surely something like that must exist, mustn't it?!

I've attached a photograph below.

Thanks very much!

Thank you so much! That's definitely it!

Do you know why it curls up in the leaf-tips? Perhaps it has just been too dry... What sort of soil should I use? Do they like a large pot or should I leave it in this one? I've read that they don't like fertilizer and that they need strong light.

The curl in the photo seems like fungal disease. They like an organic rich soil with good drainage. They are a though plants so they can grow well even without fertilizer.

They need full sun or partial shade. Full sun will give them bright color leaves
