Identifying a Houseplant

I was just given this plant by a neighbor. I have no idea what it is. I thought it might be a dracaena of some sort, but it droops down the side of the pot. Can anyone help me?

Dont Dracaena stand upright? This one only droops like a spider plant without the fluffy upright leaves. The leaves match but the structure doesnt seem to. Let me know which kind od Dracaena.

If this is what I think it is, we used to call them Rooster Plants. I want to say the real name is Ti something or other....the brain is a terrible thing to lose. Does your photo match this:

If this is what you have, they are hardy souls and grow in just about any condition....at least mine did.

Hi, In England we call it a tradescantia zebrina I'm sure it's the same where you are.

It looks like a Wandering Jew. I have had mine for 24 years and it's a wonderful plant that sometimes gets tiny pink-purple flowers. Each flower only lasts a day. The plant loves light and is very forgiving if you sometimes don't water it on time.

They do grow fast so I keep mine small and manageable by transplanting it twice a year. All I have to do is pull off top pieces (about 2 inches long) and put them in soil. I don't use any rooting medium, just water. In a week or two, it will start to grow. It's an amazing plant.

I think this plant is a wandering Jews. You can keep them outside in the summer and bring them in the winter.They need plenty of light.
