Cuban Oregano Culture

I purchased a Cuban Oregano plant but I forgot to ask the cashier on how to grow it.

Cuban oregano like the other Plectranthus species we offer likes well-drained gritty but fertile soil and should be kept slightly moist but never soggy wet. It needs full sun to develop into a sturdy plant. It cannot tolerate freezing temperatures and has to be brought indoors for the winter before the first frost. Nip out the tip if you want it to develop branching.
