    This plant was given to me and it was originally kept outside. When the weather cooled I brought it inside and now it's growing like crazy and has even started blooming, it's very happy :)

    I can't seem to find a picture of it anywhere, but I'm pretty sure it's a common houseplant. Can anyone tell me the name?

    Thanks,
    Jenny

    That is a wandering Jew .. they are a really easy plant to grow and start from clippings . they root within 2 to 3 days as long as the stems are touching some sort of moisture .. you have a beautifull plant there .. nice and healthy ... if any vines snap off just stick it in the dirt ..it will root ...

    Hi
    its a really nice wandering jew there u have, they grow out doors here cos its so warm in the tropics, can take sun but do better in part to filtered light, really easy to propagate as the guys said, and has really nice light purple flowers, grows unreal! fast
