Tradescantia 'Zebrina' (Wandering Jew)
Tradescantia are trailing/rambling plants often seen in baskets and containers indoors or as ground cover outside.
Here we grow this cultivar indoors but in mild areas it is fantastic outside.
The leaves are purple underside and purple streaked with silver on the top. They have adapted in the wild to grow on the floors of rainforests where light is limited so the colourings are actually the plant adapting pigments to absorb more light. This makes them great for a shadier spot. Keep in partial sun/shade. An east facing window for example.
Require minimal watering and feed only through summer months.
Fantastic decorative foliage plant.
Comes in a 9cm pot.
