What Is This Houseplant?

I've been searching and can't figure out what type of plant this is. It's tripled in size since I got it free on Craigslist a year ago, but I would love to still read about care or know when to report it. It's vines coil and the leaves are purple underneath. Also, there's a bunch of white dots that appeared on the top of the soil 3 or so months ago. Should I be concerned? It doesn't seem to have impacted the plant at all.

This looks like a Wandering Jew plant. It makes a great hanging plant as well.

Most people think of the purple and/or variegated plant when they hear Wandering Jew but there is a variety of green also. It is very easy to care for and new plants from cuttings usually do very well.

Here are some photos and also some care instructions. Check some of these out and see if they match your plant.

Could the white stuff on the soil have been something like perlite that was mixed in the soil when planted?
