Hi I'm Tradescantia Zebrina or "The Wandering Jew" plant. This name is derived from my ability to easily root and thrive in different environments. I'm part of the Spiderwort family and I'm also known as Zebrina pendula or the Inch Plant.
I'm prized for my easy-care nature and colourful foliage of silver, purple and green which brighten up any room as a hanging or trailing indoor plant. My leaves clasp the creeping or trailing stems. Pinch out my growing tips regularly to encourage bushiness and remove all green shoots as soon as they appear. Winter warmth is not essential to me
I'm in a 12cm pot and I’m 15cm in height.
Average warmth and bright light.
I don't really have any. I'm pretty easy-going. Perfect for a new houseplant collector.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I'm so easy to look after. Average warmth, bright light (some direct sun) and water me liberally in the growing season. Oh, I love a little mist too.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m mildly toxic. Keep me out the way.
