Found this poor plant withering away in a house we are painting. Gave it a small drink and it is forever thankful. Now what do I do with it?

If I were going to do that, I wouldn't have watered it to start with. Just trying to see what it is!

Well now that I see you added the picture, this puts a whole new light on the subject. My wife has one of those plants, but I can't think of the name right now. 

 

My advice? Kill it!

If you don't have the heart to kill it, send it to my wife.

She will, without even trying.

See how big you can get it. They aren't hard to care for if at all vigilant.
If it has pretty flowers, repot cuttings and give it away as Christmas gifts.?

Interesting fact, these plants only have that color green leaves if talked to daily.

Hey Kenny, it might be a magic bean stalk.  Plant it, go kill the giant, and live happily everafter.
