In-house plants, very hot and humid weather with airconditioning from May to October, Bahrain Bh

The leaves are clear here, hope someone will recognise the kind of the tree.

Sorry, Hadeel! you rightly debunked my sweet plum idea, so now I'm left groping.
The leaves look almost like an Ixora. Has it ever had any flowers?

Just had it. maybe 3 weeks. I was looking at bonsai sites and I am now leaning towards privet - Ligustrum ovalifolium. What say you? Thank you

You know Tugbrethil it might well be an Ixora, the way the leaves grow on the stem are the same. However, I am just not sure about the tip of the leaf, mine is a bit pointy and compact not tall and rounded at the tip like the Ixora. Im confused now. Will research more.

There are Ixoras that have leaf tips more like Privet, but they're not that common. I was kind of going by the way the leaves join the stem, since Privets usually have more of a leaf stem, but there are a lot of Privets (and Ixoras) that I have never seen. Gotta do my own research, just for education!

Yes thats what I was thinking as well, the way the leaves join the stem, there is no leaf stem.

Ok, I found what it is. It is a Suriname cherry, Eugenia uniflora. Got the answer from Angela on another forum. Thanks Tugbrethil. Now I need to learn about bonsai.

Fantastic, Hadeel! Now all I have to do is remember what that plant looks like, in the future! : )
