Houseplant Name?

I got this plant at my grocery store, but the tag inserted in the dirt did not show a name. It only called it a “tropical plant” and gave its light, water, and temperature needs. I want to know more so I can look it up myself. I would appreciate your help in identifying it.

Hi Veronique,


Your picture is very dark but I think you bought a Purple Waffle Plant (Hemigraphis alternata).

Let me know if it looks like this picture? (Photo by Dr. Stanley Kays)
