Tradescantia Care

Tradescantia Care

As a houseplant, it's loved for its no-fuss nature. Because it's a relatively low maintenance plant, the  Tradescantia plant is perfect for many homes and apartments. 

Lighting: Tradescantia Plants like bright indirect light. The better the light, the more flowers and colorful leaves a Tradescantia Plant produces. Direct sun causes the colors in the leaves to fade.

Water: Water a Tradescantia Plant well and then allow the top 2 or 3 inches of soil to dry out before watering the plant again. If the soil stays too dry and the plant is in bright light, the leaves become stunted and lose color.

Temperature: A Tradescantia Plant grows well in temperatures between 60-80 degrees.
