I recently bought a plant called "Red Sister". It is about 3 feet tall with rather large, green and red leaves. I can find no information about this plant.

Can someone tell me what to do with it?

Cordyline terminalis 'Red Sister'is also known as the Hawaiian Ti plant. Unless you're living in the tropics, plan on keeping the plant indoors during the winter months. Some cordylines have brightly colored foliage, others are only green. For best foliage colors, provide bright light. To keep your plant healthy, maintain temperatures between 60 and 85 degrees, and keep the potting soil moist. The older leaves of the plant will fall off, but new leaves will continue to grow from the top of the plant. Propagation is by cane cuttings.
