Is the car a pocket size or larger? Not sure how big these plants are.

Tradescantia or Commelina most likely.

Although it rather made me think of young costus ginger plants, or gloriosa seedlings.
Any chance you could dig round a little and see if there is a bulbous root or rhizome?

Hey all, I want to thank you for your replies and sorry it took me so long to answer!
Turns out this is a "green wandering jew". Very hardy plant and it has almost doubled in size since I first posted the pics!

one version is the worst weed i ever ran across... 10 years of killing it in spring.. and i still have sprouting seed ...

so make sure which version you have.. long before it seeds ..

and if you didnt plant it.. and its a rogue seedling... that might tell you all you need to know ...

i am noting your media .... or is that native soil????

i see you figured out the HTML code for this post ...

The plant can be invasive but i want plants that are fast growing and low maintenance.
The potting soil is from a company named "Florava".
