Tradescantia zebrina (Purple) 4in HB
Like any Spiderwort, they like to stay consistently moist but will tolerate drying out for a short period. Very fast growing, trailing plants that love being put in a hanging pot.
Potting mix: Well-draining soil/peat and perlite mix. Prefers a somewhat water-retentive mix of mostly soil and organic matter. Repot in Spring every 1-2 years.
Light: Bright indirect-medium light. Shielded South or West facing preferred. Higher light = more variegation.
Water: Water when near dry (1 inch of the soil is close to dry). Somewhat resilient to drying out but leaves will crisp. Bounces back easily.
Temp: Warm (50F min night, 85F max day).
Humidity: 30-70%. Not picky as long as they are well-watered.
Fertilizing: Slow release fertilizer (Osmocote recommended) applied at the beginning of Spring. Alternatively, 1/2 strength soluble 20-20-20 fertilizer applied monthly during Spring/Summer. Decrease or stop in Winter.
