I have a serious 'thing' with these plants.  Not only do they have phenomenal foliage - often with iridescence - but they grow like mad, make wonderful hanging, trailing plants, and are easy to care for.  Give them plenty of light and let dry slightly between waterings (though I admit that I let mine dry out entirely and they still do well.)  This comes to you in a 3.5 - 4'inch pot.
