Plectranthus oertendahlii is grown as a houseplant under the common name of "Emerald Green Swedish Ivy" and is easy to care for. As a member of the mint family, this plant has squarish stems that root easily. The abundant leaves are rounded and a bit hairy. They are marked with pale patterns set against a darker background. Young leaves are entirely green, but as they grow larger and mature, silvery veins and a dark red underside develop.
