The Tradescantia or 'Silver Inch Plant' is a prolific grower, which makes it an ideal plant for sharing with friends! Simply trim the last 3/4 inches of your Tradescantia, place the cuttings in fresh soil or water and they will develop roots and double in size in no time. Alternatively, allow you Silver Inch Plant to fill its own pot and overflow the sides with long, hanging tendrils.
There are many different varieties of Tradescantia which range from greens to pinks, purples and silvers.
You may also know this plant as Tradescantia pallida 'Purpurea', Purple Queen, Purple Spiderwort, 'Wandering Jew' or 'Wandering Dude'.
Light: Bright, indirect light maintains the most colourful leaves and stops the plant getting spindly.
Water: During growing season water regularly, wait until the soil is dry before watering again. For best results water from underneath with the use of a saucer to reduce the chance of root rot.
Food: Feed lightly during the growing season but not during the winter.
Humidity: Tolerates normal inside humidity but an increased humidity will create a fuller, happier plant.
Plant arrived quickly and the packaging made sure it arrived in one piece.
Such interesting colouring on this plant - it almost doesn't look real! I'm looking forward to seeing how it grows.
