Tradescantia sp.
It is thought that this plant is closely related to the Small-leaf spiderwort  (Tradescantia fluminensis).  The flower of the Tradescantia SP  is smaller and it is considered that it is crossbred.  The flower has white hairs at the base of the filament. This hair has the structure that  the cells come into a line, and the overlapping of the cell walls is observed in a stripe pattern.  Incidentally, Spiderwort is often used for the observation of the protoplasmic streaming of a cell.
