Caring Tips


Tradescantia is not a big drinker. If the top two inches of her soil feel dry it’s time for a drink. She’ll forgive irregular watering.


Happy in anything from light shade to soft, bright light. It finds direct sun a bit too much.


The Tradescantia genus is a collection of approximately 75 herbaceous perennial wild flowers in the family Commelinaceae, native to parts of Canada, Argentina and the West Indies. They were introduced to Europe as ornamental house plants in the 17th century.
Most Tradescantias are trailing or clump forming, but there are a few that are climbing species too. Tradescantias make a very rewarding house plant due to their quick and vigorous growing habits. We all know it’s not all about size though! The Tradescantias make a fabulous house plant as the beauty of this plant is in the range of colours in its leaves (Joseph’s technicolour dream coat - eat your heart out!).
Tradescantia make great house plants as they are very forgiving if you forget to water them once in a while. They are not a succulent (although often mistaken for a succulent plant), as they have fleshy leaves and stems. This enables them to store a fair bit of water.
