WOW i didn't even know mine was the pic of the day...I do love these plants and they were found to be more tolerant that once believed, of different conditions. I even had one come back with a good mulching in my yard.

I used to collect plects. Even ones that were so ugly, I just had to have. LOL. Always a bad sign. At the time I had a friend who collected them too so that always pushes the need to have to a whole new level. LOL Then we had an unusually cold winter and most died and I got over my addiction.

Though I just bought a gorgeous lime green one at UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens so I did not have a complete cure. I am going to pot it up with a purple/silver one I have that was new cultivar a year or 2 ago.

ok since you have had so many... I bought one that the tag just said plectranthus green on green... do you think it's this one?

That ones looks like one of my favorite ones. Here it gets to be a big pot! I just tossed the remains of a huge one from last year. It was recovering from winter too slowly.

I will take a pic of my lime green one later. I just love it. I am hoping to get it in a really cool pot I bought last year and just got my husband to drill holes in it. I am so beat though. We spent hours yesterday dragging big plants to the curb for a pick up to the dump today. I still have so much to get rid of. All my plants I have had in pots for years that just are too big to deal with anymore. I thought I would be sad but I am relieved to get rid of them and gain some space.
