If you have a succulent, creeping houseplant with purple leaves and parallel veins, then you have a member of the Spiderwort family, often called the wandering jew. Members of this family have alternate, sharply folded leaves, and the base of each leaf wraps around the stem. These are succulent plants with mucilaginous juice.
Key Words: Succulent, mucilaginous monocot plants with three nearly equal-sized petals.
