Can someone tell me what this is? My sis sent me a couple of starts with roots. She lives in Houston says she grows it out doors, but don't know what it is called.
Thanks John

I am pretty sure it is some type of prayer plant. Do the leaves fold up at night?

I don't know if they fold up yet I just got them yesterday. Those are holes in the leaves, and the leaves are the same as my ivy except with holes.

There is a house plant called Swiss Cheese Plant
because it has holes in the leaves. I thought I
was seeing black marking on the leaves.
I read someplace that the holes disappear if the
plant does not get enough sun.
