I was recently given a houseplant and I have no idea what it is.

Zebrina Wandering Jew is a houseplant with green and silver leaves that are purple on the underside. Varieties of this plant, like Wedding Veil, also have leaves with purple undersides.

Its kinda hard to say exactly what it is because it could be a number of things. If it has a velvet texture it is most likely purple passion plant. These are hard to care for so look up what it needs.

It can be a purple leaf shamrock or velvet plants depending on the texture. If at all it feels velvety, then you know it is the latter.

Well I believe it is called a Purple Passion plant. Is it a bit velvety in nature as well? If it is then you do have this plant on you. You need to be very careful in treating it. Water it daily and strictly. Change the soil every once a while.
