Can anyone identify this plant?comments (5) June 30th, 2009 in gallery
I have been calling this plant my "whatever you call it plant" for over 4 years. I would really like to know what it is so I can call it by its correct name :-) I originally obtained a couple of plants from someone in Tampa, FL who had them growing in the ground, but since I lived in an apt. I had to relegate them to planters on my balcony. The two plants grew like crazy - having to be repotted several times, and requiring the new sprouts to be planted in their own pots where they turned into full grown plants within a few weeks. I started giving them away. I recently moved to TX, but brought one small plant with me and it is surviving quite well in a planter, although it has also been repotted a few times over the past few months. It has now produced several new shoots that will soon need to have their own pots. All that is required for the new shoots to grow is to snip them off from the mother plant and place the end into the soil. As long as the soil is kept fairly moist they start to grown their own roots almost immediately.
Please, does anyone know what this is??
