Bought this from a local college hort club. They thought it was a Wandering Jew. Pink crinkly leaves with fuzz all over them when I brought it home. Now, it’s gone crazy and grows another 1/4 every day. Still fuzzy. All the pink leaves look very dead, but this new growth comes out of the deadness. Please help!

    I’m thinking that the rapid, spindly, pale colored growth is a sign of acute plant distress. It sure looks like the plant needs to be repotted and fed and it looks like it doesn’t get enough light to keep it’s normal color. It will probably survive in this state for a few more months, but come spring: repot in a larger pot, feed it, and sit it outside and I think you will we pleasantly surprised. Don’t feed it without addressing the other problems because it will try to go into overdrive and probably die.

    it looks like an herb, maybe a type of lavender?
