    Hello,

    This plant is extremely vigorous and seems to be one of the few that I haven't managed to kill. My daughter is using it for a science experiment and we need to identify it. Can anyone help me? I appreciate your help.

    Start by comparing with Tradescantia fluminensis. If not that one, something close.

    yup it is a wandering jew .. i have the variegated version to this one and i really like it .. try keeping it close to the window with the morning sun .. they like bright light .. and the r so easy to root .. just clip back to were ya want and take a leaf or 2 off and stick it in water to root and will root within a couple of days or stick back in the dirt and they will root .. very easy plants to take care of .. I also have the purple one, the Tahitian, Bolivian, Pink, Quadcolor, another green one, .. my house is a jungle ..lol.. but i love my plants ..
