    I have had this plant in my possession for 3 1/2 days. I am thinking it is similar to an orchid/bromeliad. Help me out if you can.
    It has been dormant with no water for probably a month before I received it and I think that I am sort of shocking it by soaking it immediately, but I really need the roots to show if I expect it to grow at all. And they are! There are some roots that I will upload photos of when I can.
    Thanks everyone, don’t hesitate
    -Dean

    It looks like some type of Tradescantia to me. The one in the middle looks like Schefflera arboricola.

    Spiderworts are rather persistent and can handle great amount of negligence and droughts. They are rooting easily. Don't worry about shocking them with water.
