Someone please tell me the name of this plant. I believe "fig" is part of the name, but my search has been fruitless (no pun intended). I believe she likes sun, but she's not looking her best and thus might be getting too much sun. If I knew the name I could read up on how to better care for her. Thanking you in advance.
