...on the bottom of it's leaves.

I received this plant along with 10 kolanchoe cuttings at church today. I'm sorry I don't have a picture. I believe it is a house plant. It is kind of like a cross between a palm and a vine in it's growth habits. And the leaves look like orchid leaves being blade like and extending from a center stem.

It was so rootbound that it had eaten all the soil out of it's pot. And it was bone dry so I divided it. And then put it in two new posts with the best potting soil I have. It isn't new but it is literally all I have right now.

And I gave them both a good drink of water. I hope it will recover. I also took all the brown leaves off of it and cut the brown parts of leaves off.

I googled it but this isn't the same plant. The plant I have has leaves that are solid green on top and solid puple on the underside.

And I really could not describe the one I have as a vine which a wandering jew certainly is. I had one when I was a kid so I know what they look like.

Thankyou very much for trying to identify it. I bet it is closely related to the wandering jew.

there are more than a few types of wandering jew. moses in a boat/oyster plant is a type and, from your description, it sounds like what you've got.

It's the second one. Woohoo, that is it. Is that the oyster plant? Do you have any information on it's care and feeding? I've never had one before and I would like them to do well. They will make great presents.
