Last fall during the seed exchange, I received a packet of seeds labeled zabrina. Can anyone tell me what kind of plant this is? How do I get the seeds to grow, they are the only ones I can not get to sprout.

Thank you very much idea nutz

If its meant to be spelled Z-E-B-R-I-N-A, the first A being an E then it is:

Wandering Jew-- trailing plant-fleshy stems-pointed oval leaves with silver and bright green stripes -small purple or pink flowers on certain species
Bright light- average room temp.- med.humidity.
All purpose potting soil-allowed to dry between watering to prevent root rot.
My info says propagate from stem cuttings so this may be something TOTALLY different but I couldn't find anything on it spelled with the A...
Duh
