Although this plant was originally sold to us as 'Limelight', I believe it is one and the same as 'Easy Gold'. Wonderful Plectranthus that roots easily from cuttings and has brighter variegation with more light.

This plant is VERY easy to root. Just break off a bit, dip in rooting hormone if you have it (it's not really needed), and plant. Keep moist for a week or so.
