What is this purple plant?

I bought this plant at Ikea and I am having trouble identifying it. The label says 'Himalayan mix, tropical'. The instructions say to water sparingly and keep out of direct sunlight.

If anyone knows what it is, please let me know! Also instructions on care would be appreciated. I am planning to add it to a terrarium with some succulents in it (the watering instructions are the same on this one and the succulents I bought).
