Tradescantia Zebrina

(3 customer reviews)


This is a treat of a plant. It’s super versatile, you can prune them so they stay nice and bushy, or you can let them trial.  They are very easy to look after and the colours of the leaves are just WOW. They are bright bright purple and silver striped. They have a lovely iridescence to them and would add a gorgeous splash of colour to anyones home jungle. They are also VERY easy to propagate – so once you buy one you get like a bajillion free 🙂 Bargain!

Light :This one loves the light. The light will keep those leaves looking so pretty. Bright light will be fine for them, you can pop them on a window ledge. 

Water: Being an easy to have houseplant means this little chappy is drought tolerant. However, a good watering schedule will be best for her. Make sure you don’t let her sit in soggy soil. Let the top of the soil dry out between watering! 

Humidity: You shouldn’t have to worry about extra humidity. 

Temperature: Normal house temperature is good here. She is not frost tolerant, so just be mindful of that. 

Food: You could feed her in the summer months, about once a month. But honestly, she would be fine without. 

Toxicity:  Very mildly toxic, people have reported that the sap has irritated their skin.

Dimensions 12 × 10 cm

Brown / Crispy If your plant is looking dry then it is dry. You could try a number of things, up the watering, give it a mist, or take it out of direct sun.
