How to Grow and Care

Easy and plant can be quite resilient. Tradescantias do best in partial shade but will do equally well in sunny areas as long as the soil is kept moist.

If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes.

** Protect from heavy rains and standing water to prevent rot.
