Rescuing plants

One of my coworkers had a Moses-in-the-Cradle (Tradescantia spathacea)  The plant in question is here (a picture from Wikipedia)

It has been growing with minimal indoor light and had returned to an all green plant.  Although I am not in horticulture therapy anymore, I still will rescue plants when asked.  I brought the plant home, gave it a haircut, transplanted it into a larger pot, and fertilized it.  It is going in a window with southern exposure.  Hope to get it purple again.

On another note, I have felt the calling to return to my plant therapy.  I am trying to get the hospital to engage me as a Horticulture Therapist again... in the true sense of the word I could work with patients once a week.  "Nothing ventured, nothing gained!" my grandma used to say.
