Rhoeo spathacea is the synonym of Tradescantia spathacea. Moses in the Cradle is a rather succulent herb with a dense cluster of sturdy sword-shaped leaves arising from a trunklike stem. The leaves are a dark teal-tinged forest green on top and vivid violet underneath.
The small white three-petaled flowers are hidden in boat-shaped purple bracts nestled in the leaf axils. Flowers and seeds are produced all year. Probably, the boat-shaped bracts with a small white flower in the middle look like an eye.
