I just got a purple waffle plant a few weeks ago. It is in medium light, but the leaves are dry around the edges and starting to curl. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hates to dry out. It is a plant that grows good in terririum bog conditions. This is a plant that if someone like to water everyday would love.

You can also sit the plant in a saucer with pebbles to raise the humidity around the leaves if you don't want it in a terrarium or under a dome

This is a plant I have in my garden. It was given to me in a great state of disrepair last year. Had about 2cleaves and no label. It's some type of oregano. Anyone have any ideas. Thanks, Bea

Hi & welcome, Bea!

Your question about ID is inside a discussion from 4 years ago about purple waffle plant. If you're not satisfied with the replies here, you could also start a fresh, new discussion in the Plant ID section:

Your plant looks like a Plectranthus to me. Compare to this one:
Cuban Oregano (Plectranthus amboinicus)
