We purchased this plant at a gardening center a few months ago, the plant is thriving and it's time to move it into a larger pot, but we aren't quite sure what it is or needs.  Can you help?

GardenGrl1 writes: Beautiful plant! It looks like Joseph's Coat 'Partytime' (Alternanthera 'Partytime'), but those are 'only supposed to grow to about 18 inches'. Here is a website with the picture and name: http://www.pernellgerver.com/josephscoatpartytime.htm
The care directions are pretty basic, though. I think whatever you are doing right now is working great! Posted: 7:45 am on October 3rd
