Question: What is a plectanus plant

Answer: The square stem of plectranthus tells you it is a member of the mint family. At the base of each pair of thick, fleshy, scallop-edged leaves are two tiny new ones. The foliage is rather brittle, and easily broken. They range from solid green to silver, purple, and variegated green and white ones. Swedish Ivy is one example of a plectranthus plant.
