Can you help me identify this plant?

This plant was in a basket grouping and out grew it. I transplanted to a pot of it’s own but can’t seem to find what it is anywhere. Thank you very much!!! 🙂

Hi LaDawn,

Green, white, lavendar Moses in the Cradle Plant Tradescantia spathacea

Moses in the Cradle Plant

Your plant is called a Tradescantia spathacea or Moses in the Cradle Plant. Moses In the Cradle HousePlants produce rosettes of long ,waxy, sword-shaped leaves that are glossy green on top and a rich purple on the under side. The very small three petaled white flowers of Moses-in-the-Cradle HousePlants are tucked away in a purple boat shaped bract in the leaf axil. This gives Moses-in-the-Cradle Houseplants their many common names. Treat Moses-in-the-Cradle HousePlants as you would Succulent Plants and it will grow beautifully. Here are a few of my care tips and you can read more in the Popular HousePlant section of the website.
