This hardy, bushy plant is a great started plant. It's extremely easy to care for and has interesting variegation through the leaves. Common pests for these are spider mites (dry climates are their playgrounds!). Shower the plant under sink to keep dust off leaves and mites at bay. Preventatively spraying all plants monthly is a good plant care routine to add.
