I have a tiny farmhouse in rural PA w/ lots of fields & forest... I enjoy being surrounded by as many plants as possible, both outdoors & in my home!

Tradescantia spathacea 'Versicolor' syn. Tradescantia spathacea 'Tricolor', Rhoeo spathacea 'Tricolor'

@Cheri92274 When I first bought them, they grew and multiplied like crazy... Winter never seemed to bother them in the past, but this year totally decimated the entire population 😔 I only have 2 or 3 tiny ones left alive, and they aren't looking very healthy either... I'm sorry, I wish I had some advice... if you happen to hear anything useful please let me know!

@tlbean7 We bought 2 of these (maybe 4" tall) last year & they multiplied into about 30 baby plants since then!

@Acetaker Sure! 😊 Idk if you read the comments above, but we have a surplus of this one at the moment, lol 😀 I don't think it's an actual lily, I know it's in the same family as the wandering jew, but not sure if it grows flowers or not??? I just like its pretty striped foliage (& purple underside!) It's really hard to take a decent photo for some reason 😕 ...but if you still want some, just let me know!

@rainygirl70 Thank you! 😊 although the colors are so much brighter in real life... This is the most un-photogenic plant, LOL! 😁 It's so frustrating, nearly impossible to get a decent pic 😖

Take a pic of this now..I'd love to see it. Don't think I know what this is unless it may go by a different name.😊

@Acetaker It does go by several names... I know one others is Moses-in-a-basket, & I've also heard it called a wandering jew (which I knew as a different plant, but I think the nickname may apply to more than one species!) Either way I'll try to get a better photo 😊

@aes239 would it be a Spider plant?😊

@Acetaker The foliage is striped similar to a spider plant, only the underside is purple 😊 & it also doesn't grow lil baby 'spiders' from the ends, unfortunately 😋
