It could be Cuban oregano, the leaves are similar but the zigzag design on the outer edge is partial, not like Cuban oregano. But plants do have a way of evolving, so it could be Cuban oregano, a sure way would be the smell. Lol... it could very well be Cuban oregano. Thanks. :)

You are right. It is Cuban oregano. Thanks. Please look at my other thread. The thread "Is this an Alien specie??" in Plant ID forum

Thanks
