Identify a house plant

Hi I was wondering if you knew what the name of this plant was?

Hi Mikki,


Your plant looks like either a Wandering Jew or a Moses in the Cradle. They are both member of the Spathacea family. If you could email a close up of the leaves I could be more certain. Here are pictures of both, let me know what you think. Both of the plants have varieties with solid green leaves,striped leaves, and purple leaves. You can read my plant care tips for both of these plants in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
