An easy and fast-growing plant that is loved for its boldly colored leaves and vining growth.

 LIGHT

Your Tradescantia Zebrina requires bright, indirect light. If the light is too dim, the leaf stripings will fade. 

WATER

Keep the soil moist, as it is best not to let your Tradescantia Zebrina become too dry. Water when the top inch of soil is dry and be sure to water the soil underneath the leaves. Don’t worry if you forget once in a while—it will occasionally tolerate a missed watering. Look out for drooping yellow leaves, they are a symptom of too much water. 

HUMIDITY

Your bathroom or kitchen would be a great choice for your Tradescantia Zebrina because it does best in a slightly more humid environment. Feel free to mist your plant frequently. If the humidity is too low the leaves will start to brown. 

TEMPERATURE

Tradescantia Zebrinas prefer average to warm temperatures of 55–80 degrees during the day and above 50 degrees at night. 

FOOD

Feed monthly in the spring through fall with a general purpose indoor plant fertilizer at half strength. Before applying fertilizer in any form, make sure the soil is damp. 

TOXICITY

Your Tradescantia Zebrina is mildly toxic to humans and pets. Ingestion may cause mouth and stomach irritation. 

ADDITIONAL CARE

Pinching back the long vines encourages branching and increases the fullness of the plant. To do this, simply ‘pinch’ off at a joint or at the tender new growth at the end of the stem.
