Does anyone know what this plant is called? It's a creeping vine type plant with light green & white variegated, almond-shaped leaves. It was thriving last year, but since my cat turfed it on the floor and I had to re-pot and move it, it's been struggling (thus the yellower colour to some of the leaves).Thanks!
Cybergrannie is right it is a Tradescantia Fluminensis and because of its white and green colors it is Tradescantia Fluminensis variegata. When different coloured parts appear on the leaves of a plant which normally would be plain green "variegata" is added to the plant name. The Ficus benjamina in nurseries used to be plain green leaf plant and then the first green and yellow or green and white leaf ficus began to be sold and they are called ficus benjamina variegata.
Hope this helps !
I bought this from a flea market in Florida. It is a hanging plant with green and purple leaves.
From the picture it looks like a purple wandering Jew plant.
That plant is a wandering Jew plant; I have grown them in potting soil and in water. The plant I grew in water was kept on my kitchen windowsill in a large vase filled with water and small river rocks.
Yep, its a wandering jew. They are a fun plant to go, and a fairly easy keeper.
It looks like you found a very healthy Wandering Jew hanging plant. Here is a site that will tell you how to care for this nice plant:
It's called a Wandering Jew Plant. I love it because it's easy to take care of and makes a beautiful hanging basket. Tradescantia pallida is it's species name.
Can anyone help identify the name of this plant? It's a hanging pot plant, that I am learning blooms in the fall. I purchased it this past spring, and totally forgot what kind of plant the seller said that it was. I would really like to be able to look it up online to see how to take care of it in fall and winter, but don't know the name of it or what family it's from. I can send a closer picture if requested. Please help, and thank you in advance.
The picture doesn't show enough for us to help you. Take a photo of just the leaves and flowers if it has them closer up so it can be identified.
It's gorgeous. Send a close-up photo and I'm sure someone will id it for you.
Need to see what a leaf looks like. Closeup please.
It looks like it could be some type of wandering jew but I can't see the leaves well enough to be sure.
