Is anyone growing this plant indoors? I would like to know the best care requirements. I am not sure how much light it needs and how moist the soil should be kept. Thanks.

Some research regarding Callisia repens will give you all kinds of good information. I've always called it 'Inch Plant'.

If it is Callisia repens, it can definitely be kept inside. Makes a nice filler around about any larger plant. (Plant shown outside for summer vacation, but definitely a house plant during winter, had for many years.)
