Positive MotherNature4 On Feb 3, 2009, MotherNature4 from Bartow, FL (Zone 9a) wrote:

Mirror Plant is an easy to grow, long-lived house plant. The tiny, glossy leaves make this plant ideal for bonsai. It prefers well drained soil and regular watering, but becomes drought resistant with age. The bright green leaves with white edges and compact, prostrate stems make it an excellent ground cover.
