Welcome!

The genus is Tradescantia. I'm sure someone will know which one.

I think that's right (Callisia fragrans) and stand corrected. I told you someone would know which one. Smiling

Protect from frost and provide some direct light this winter, you should start to see a flower stalk forming on at least the oldest part in the middle in another month or 2.
