The Waffle Plant is a popular houseplant. It differs from its relatives in the shape of the leaves: ovate with a pointed tip.
Waffle Plant grows to be 20-24 in (50-60 cm) tall. It is native to Southeast and East Asia. The plant's leaves are particularly beautiful, egg-shaped with jagged edges. In the shade, the leaves are silvery; in the sun, they are burgundy on the underside and purplish metallic on top. The blooms of Hemigraphis are tiny and gathered in capitate inflorescences.
