Answer: Spotted deadnettle, a member of the mint family, Lamiaceae, has leaves that are similar to stinging nettle without the toxic effect, hence its name, deadnettle. The plant parts are not poisonous but the roots may be. Neither are supposed to be consumed so if you keep the plant away from curious fingers, everything should be fine.
Spotted deadnettle is a perennial ground cover that brightens shady spots with its variegated green to silver leaves. In spring and summer it produces flowers. I've never grown it indoors but if you provide lots of bright light, it should grow and flower for you. Enjoy!
