Looks like a ruellia to me

RE: does anybody know what plant this is?

Ruellia ( Mexican Petunia )...Does it have purple or pink flowers that are very thin and delicate and tubular in shape? Can you see small nodules near the nodes or sections of the stem? If so then you def have a Ruellia. which by the way you can share or propagate by cutting at the stem nodes and sticking in dirt. :) Cheers
