This is one of my favorite plants that I own. After much researching, I've finally found it's name! I bought it a Bachmann's, a garden store, in Minnesota. It was labeled a s "Tropical Mini" and sold for $1.25. That was it, no other information. What I like most about this little one is how quickly it grows. It made me feel like a pro! The problem is, it gets so tall that it's top bends over. I've tried propping it up but that has bruised and ruined many of it's leaves. Propagation was easy! Nice plant that provides contrast to my others. Water and fertilize it enough that the leaves stand out horizontally, or even just reaching up at the ends. Very cute!

A beautiful green color and very easy care. It does grow fast so make sure you have the room indicated above. Mine reached 2'-3' in less than a year and overgrew its space. I now keep one in a pot and it stays much smaller.
