I just bought a plectranthus argentatus for my mother in law for mothers day. I'm not sure how to take care of it at I will be hanging on to it for a few weeks. I also want to make sure she has all the proper ways to keep it healthy. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Plectranthus, or Swedish Ivy, is a popular trailing plant for indoor hanging baskets. The plant is easy to grow and regular pinching of the vine tips will produce a bushy, full specimen. Provide average household warmth (minimum 50F in winter), bright light (but no direct sunshine), moist soil except in winter, and occasional misting during hot weather.
