Please identify this plant for me?
These are three clippings from an original plant that was long and hanging.

Thank you in advance!

It's a Tradescantia spathacea (syn. Rhoeo spathacea - not sure which is currently the accepted name) , aka Oyster Plant, Moses in the Cradle, Moses in a Basket, Boatlily, and probably numerous others. Looks like it may be the dwarf form which is pretty common.
