    Hello,
    About six months ago I was given a cutting of a plant. The original plant was very full, sat on a piano and hung down almost to the ground, and had small pink/purple flowers all over it. I put the cutting in water at home and soon discovered that it did not like being in direct sun-light. Away from direct sun, however, it did beautifully and continued to flower as it grew roots. Since potting the plant and putting it in a well lit spot out of direct sun-light, it is doing very well but it has not flowered. I turn it regularly so it grows upright, otherwise it would turn down like a vine.

    Would someone kindly help me identify this plant so that I can make sure that I care for it properly.

    Thank you and regards,
    Saleve

    Hello Chris,
    Thank you! Would you happen to know why it's no longer flowering?
    Best regards,
    Diane

    Well they typically don't flower outdoors in cool weather. Perhaps your home is too cool?
    It does also look a bit stretched for light, so perhaps a bit of Morning sun would encourage
    flowering.

    Thanks! I'll try moving it to a sunnier spot.
