I grabbed a tiny tiny 3 leaved cutting of this from work last year, and now it's flowering, and it is in the worst soil ever haha, no fertilizer, just coco coir and perlite.

Yes, Plectranthus, possibly Swedish Ivy (Plectranthus verticillatus) Not really an Ivy or related so I'm not sure where it got it's common name. It was a very popular houseplant back in the 1970's but I haven't seen it around in a long while.

Looks like creeping Charlie, the houseplant version. Not the weed!

Thumbs up There are a few plants with the common name of "Creeping Charlie" and this Plectranthus is one of them: http://garden.org/plants/searc...

Yes, common names can be shared by multiple plants, and individual plants can have multiple common names.
The golden rule: Do to others only that which you would have done to you.
