This plant has semi fuzzy deep green leaves with purple undersides, unless the plant isn't getting enough sun (in which case the purple is a moderately comely green).

This plant's older stems are usually woody while the younger stems are softer and easily propagated in water.

This plant has small clusters of flowers that are white with a bit of light purple in them.

Thank you, all! This has been bothering me for a little over six months, I think, haha. When I saw that the mother plant had bloomed (i hadn't known it bloomed at all, until then) I knew it was time to snap pictures for the ID forum.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my query and to answer it! I truly appreciate it.

Thank You!
