Can you please help me identify this plant? A colleague gave me a clipping from his plant, which he got from another colleage, and no one seems to know which plant it is. I’m hoping to get a sense of what this plant needs in order to thrive. The plant has thin leaves that start out green in the center with dark red edges, but has the leaves mature, the red edges become spotty and the green increases. Thank you!
Your plant is a type of Coleus, probably the Saturn’s Rings variety. The purple edges around the green center part of the leaves probably starts to fade because the Coleus is not getting enough light to maintain the purple variation. You can read more about a Coleus in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
