A friend gave me a clipping of this plant (that she grew from a clipping from a plant that her Great Grandmother had) and I rooted it and potted it. It’s a slow grower but has soft, fuzzy leaves (sort of reminds me of a type of African violet). Wanting to know what this plant is and how best to take care of it and what the best environment for it to flourish would be. Thanks in advance!
