Do you have any idea what kind of plant this is? I just got it at a store that was going to throw it away. They had no idea what it was, it was at a Family Dollar store.
Your plant is called a White-Edged Swedish Ivy. (Plectranthus coleoides marjinata).
White – Edged Swedish Ivy Plant: by Ahodges
Here are some care tips for you.
Swedish Ivy Plants require bright indirect light, but no direct sun. Inadequate light causes a Swedish Ivy to “reach’ for the light and become leggy looking.
Allow the top 30% of the soil of a Swedish Ivy Plant to dry out before watering. Most people kill a Swedish Ivy by over- watering and causing root rot. Yellow leaves indicate the plant is over- watered. The leaves of a Swedish Ivy Plant become soft and dull green when the plant needs water. You can always save an under- watered Swedish Ivy but you can never save an over- watered one.
A Swedish Ivy Plant should be fertilized about every two weeks in the spring and summer when it is actively producing new leaves. Use a plant food high in nitrogen diluted it to 1/2 the recommended strength.
Swedish Ivy Plants prefer warm temperatures between 70-75 degrees during most of the year. In the winter, cooler temperatures between 60-65 degrees are best.
Although a Swedish Ivy Plant prefers high humidity, it grows well in regular household humidity.
