I got this plant at my grocery store, but the tag inserted in the dirt did not show a name. It only called it a “tropical plant” and gave its light, water, and temperature needs. I want to know more so I can look it up myself. I would appreciate your help in identifying it.
Your picture is very dark but I think you bought a Purple Waffle Plant (Hemigraphis alternata).
Let me know if it looks like this picture? (Photo by Dr. Stanley Kays)
Here are a few care tips;
Water your waffle plant whenever the top 2 to 4 inches of soil feels dry. Water thoroughly, until the water comes out the bottom drip holes in the pot.
Fertilize a Waffle Plant once a month during spring and summer with a 5-10-5 fertilizer. with a ratio such as 5-10-5.
Pinch the tips of a Waffle Plant to keep the plant compact, full, and bushy.
