Could you add a pic showing it from the side? Looks like a Tradescantia or Callisia, but not sure from that angle. Pretty!

Dichorisandra thrysifolia, the immature leaves are more variegated than the mature ones. And it is indeed a spiderwort, purple. Good call! :)

I never would have thought Tradescantia but I'm really bad at trying to identify plants from comparing photo's. For comparison check out these photo's of Blue Ginger (Dichorisandra thyrsiflora)
