I purchased a hanging basket plant that did not have the plant name and I would like to know what it is. It looks like a very small leaved "wandering jew". It is very compact, but does send out shoots like a wandering jew does. The leaves are varigated with purple on the underside of the leaves which are no more than 1/2 inch in length. Could anyone suggest what this plant is?

Sounds like Tradescantia of some kind, except the leaves are too small - any chance of a photograph?

I have some small leaf forms that fit the bill as wanderingJew/Sailor and as Bamboo says it sounds like it is Tradescantia
