Scientific Name: Plectranthus Prostratus Gurke

Other  Names: Succulent Swedish Ivy/Tangled Heart Plant

Family: Lamiaceae

Genus: Plectranthus

Native: Tropical South Africa


A cute, pillowy leafed and multi-branched succulent plant that is sun-loving and hardy. Its lime green leaves turn pinkish on their edges when exposed to strong sunlight. Given its amazingly quick growth and vining habit, this plant works beautifully in a hanging basket on a sunny balcony, and is suitable for desert terrariums too.


* All our plants are organically grown without the use of any chemical fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides.

***This rate is for a standard 1/2 liter potted starter plant. For larger sizes please visit the plant nursery by Mandy's Farm.
