RE: HAVE: Purple waffle plant /colorado ivy

So that's what I've got. I bought it for a dollar off the sale table at Lowe's. I have it on my kitchen window sill sitting in a bowl which I fill with water when it starts to droop. It seems to like it's roots in rich, continually moist soil.

The "how to care" articles say it likes sun, moderate temps and moist air, but I don't think it's talking about Texas sun, since mine is doing well in an N. E. facing window.
