Tolmiea menziesii (Piggyback Plant) 4"
Scientific name: Tolmeia menziesii
Native to the redwood forests of the Pacific Coast, the Piggyback Plant gets its name from its completely unique growing habit. Mature leaves can be found producing plantlets that grow out of where the leaf attaches to the stem, 'piggybacking' off of the parent leaf. A relatively short-lived plant, be sure to propagate them in the spring to keep a supply of mature plants on hand.
Light: Moderate to bright light, but no direct sun. Pale leaves and long spaces between leaves indicate the plant is not getting enough sunlight.
Water: Water regularly throughout the growing season, keeping the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Water less in winter, when growth is slower.
