Mystery Gift Plant

SqueeeshJune 29, 2013

Hi, I got this plant as a gift, but I have no idea what is it! The leaves have some hair on them but it is sparse and not as soft as a normal fuzzy leaf. Bottom of leaf has no hair on it. The plant came from a reptile trade show, so i'm guessing it needs humidity and lots of water. Any help so I can care for this little guy would be appreciated!

Here in Philadelphia, outdoors, it needs part shade. Dense shade & it gets leggy & doesn't flower. Medium water & good drainage, otherwise, they rot at the base. Indoors, as Ken says, good light.
