Bamboo like office plant

Observed: 8th April 2013 By: mgaved

Its leaves are like bamboo but its got a woody stem, so I am not sure it is actually a bamboo. My boss has asked me if I can save it! Used to live in her office, quite shady, we think it might need a bit more light and some transplanting. Knowing what it is might help me understand what I need to do to help it...

Office plant

I'm fairly sure it is a fig but not sure about what variety - possibly 'bennendizkii'. However, figs do require good light and can tolerate some direct sunlight. I would water it quite regularly in the growing season - not in winter. A liquid feed would also help periodically
