The Tradescantia (Trad-Ess-Scant-TIA) Zebrina (Zeb-BREE-na) is an eye-catching and very interesting trailing plant that was first discovered in Mexico, South America and the Caribbean. 

They have beautiful leaves made up of silver, green and violet with almost a shimmering effect in the light. This plant is quite an easy plant to care for with little needs.

With up to 30cm drop and comes in a 17cm hanging pot with detachable hooks so can be hung or placed on a shelf. 💚

Interesting Facts: 

If pruned regularly, this plant will quickly produce new growth which will make the plant appear fuller.

Very good at air purifying.

Gained the common name "inch plant" due to the leaves naturally growing around an inch apart from each other.

Quick Care:

Light: Bright, indirect sunlight. If there isn't enough light, the stripes on the leaves will start to fade. Too much light and the leaves could crisp and burn.

Water: Allow soil to completely dry between waters, then water and be sure to drain any excess water left as this will create a root rot problem. Does better in a humid environment so will suit bathrooms or kitchens.

Toxicity: Mildly toxic to both animals and humans if eaten and will cause stomach upsets, so will be worth keeping away from children and pets just to be on the safe side! The sap created from cuttings can be an irritant to some people with sensitive skin, so wear gloves when handling if this is the case.

Other: Okay to feed tortoises in moderation as part of a varied diet.

Propagating:

Fairly easy to propagate and can be done any time of the year; take a stem with at least one leaf attached and place it on top of soil and water. Roots should start to appear over a few weeks. Can also be placed in water which is changed weekly until roots appear. 

Things to look out for:

Overwatering: Stems and leaves can turn yellow/brown and have a mushy appearance. 

Underwatering: If underwatered, the leaves and stems can look empty and shrivelled/dried up.

Other common names for this plant:

- Wandering Jew
- Inch Plant
- Spiderwort
- Striped Wandering Jew Plant
- Wandering Dude

 

 

We find that this plant always has new growth! So be sure to keep up with getting rid of the dead leaves it sheds, and propagate any stem droppings to replant in the top if you want a bushier plant!
