    My boyfriend brought this plant home. His boss's wife was going to throw away. It's in a hanging basket and is about 3 feet long and very full. I'd like to know for sure what it is so I can properly care for it. Thanks! 20161027_125008.jpg

    Looks like you have a Swedish Ivy (Plectranthus verticillatus).

    I don't like seeing any plants thrown away unless they are completely dead. This plant is nice and healthy. I don't know why she didn't want it. It's ok though, I'm more than happy to give it a nice home! Lol
