I have mostly houseplants and cacti. I'm a beginner doing constant research, trying not to kill anything. USDA zones 8a and 8b.

Tradescantia spathacea syn. Rhoeo spathacea, Rhoeo discolor

Day 11: Oldest Plant. This isn't my oldest plant period, but it is my oldest houseplant. Before this one I only had succulents and cacti which I kept outdoors. His name is Moses, and he's a little leggy. I like his look though. #tradescantiaspathacea #mosesinthecradle #letsgrowin2020 #letsgrowtogether #houseplant #tradescantia #moses

Is it normal for my Moses to lean over this much? Or is it unhappy? I'm about to repot it. Should I use something to stand it up or let it hang? #plantadvice #plant-advice #tradescantia #moses-in-the-cradle

Where it doesn't freeze, they're considered invasive I've heard. They're used as a ground cover.

This is one of my few inside, non-succulents. I got him really cheap because he has some broken leaves. He likes wet pebbles and sunshine. #mosesinthecradle #boatlily #houseplant
