Just looked it up and think it might be tradescantia fluminensis @lilium . Compare yours to those examples online though.

Callisia is related to the Tradescantia family and is sometimes mistakenly named as such.  Most of the group either spread or trail as with the Tradescantias, but they differ basically in that they have succulent foliage, though they have the same basic make-up of flowers – having three petals. The flowers are generally insignificant. Callisia has tropical origins – happy to live on the edges of forests – so will need either dappled shade or full sun, and preferably humid growing conditions.
