Plants: schefflera odorata, lima-lima, five fingers

I found this plant at UP BLISS, Philcoa. I guess they grow this for its medicinal properties. I like the smooth almost reflective leaves. This plant is named lima-lima or fortune plant as it may have 5,6,7, 8 or 9 leaves.

Here is SED photo with nine leaves.
