Please help identify this plant !

Hi Judy ,
I bought this plant a few days ago with no tag and I would really appreciate if you could help identify this plant so that I can provide the proper care for it ! For now I repotted it as soon as I got it so it has all-purpose potting mix and is on a table facing an east window . I am totally new at this hobby so any counsels will be strongly appreciated! Thank you in advance

Hi Molly,

Your plant looks like a purple Swedish Ivy. Most people kill a Swedish Ivy by over-watering and causing root rot. Yellow leaves indicate the plant is over-watered. The leaves become soft and dull green when a Swedish Ivy needs water. You can save an under-watered Swedish Ivy but it is hard to save an over-watered plant.

You can read my care tips for growing a Swedish Ivy in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. The picture is of a different variety, but the care is the same.
