I have mine in water now and want to move it to soil.  I live in zone 4, so this will be an indoor plant. 

I do not know what variety it is, but I need to know what kind of soil to put it in.  I am guessing my regular potting soil may not be the best idea.

It's a Pereskia godseffiana; I've had one for years. Give it as much light as possible.  Mine is in full sun all day  down here in Florida.

Cute plant! I want one!

Thank you for your help. Thank you for the warning about leaf drop. I would have thought I killed it. I have it under a grow lite in a nice warm room. I am bracing for a cold MN winter. Thank you for sharing your expertise.
There are so many of these, I really do like to know exactly what I am dealing with. I get cuttings from friends and I am amazed at how many people have no idea what they are growing. I like to maximize the chances of success!
