These little guys are a little more lime green in color than they appear in the photo. Bright light seems to bring out the purple at the base of the leaves. New growth also sometimes has a more purplish cast. I added the Valentine candy to give an idea of the leaf size. The parent plant is only about 6" tall (I've been keeping it pinched) It kind of developes a trailing habit if I let it get taller. Thanks in advance for your help!

I agree, Charlie McCarthy. A cutie. Not terribly colorful, forms a mound for me, and is delightful in it's own way.

My baby has a name! It really isn't very colorful, is it? I was drawn to the leaf shape. The fact that it was free didn't hurt anything, either. LOL!
