Some sort of spiderwort, maybe 'Angelic Charm'?

The leaves are not like the Tradescantia which you see as garden plants. It does look like the house plant type of Tradescantia called Wandering Jew, I haven't quite found a match.

The closest I can find is Tradescantia fluminensis, it has white flowers which your plant shows. The leaves are described as green though.

I think it's either a cultivar of T. fluminensis or the growing conditions have changed the leaf colour.

I don't think so Lin, the leaves on Callisia repens look smaller and it doesn't have flowers like this one, the habit is also more pendulus.

It looks like T. fluminensis to me, with some kind of chlorosis. If not, look at Gibasis geniculata although the leaves are really shaped more like the T. fluminensis. Would you be able to put a clearer pic of a flower. That should help in ID'ing. From what I can see of the flowers in these pics, they rule out the Callisa repens which I also thought at first.

I will need to go back to the nursery and get better pictures of the flowers.

Geesh, I am getting old! *Blush* I forgot to enlarge the photo ... again! It's definitely not Callisia.
