What is name of this plant?
Your plant is a type of Wandering Jew plant (TRADESCANTIA ZEBRINA). Wandering Jew houseplants, are fast growing easy care plants that are perfect to hang in front of a window that gets bright indirect light. Water a Wandering Jew Plant well and then allow the top 2 or 3 inches of soil to dry out before watering the plant again. If the soil of a Wandering Jew Plant stays too dry and the plant is in bright light, the leaves of the Wandering Jew Plant become stunted the leaves lose color.
