Care Instructions:

  • Light: Tradescantia zebrina thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight but may need protection from intense midday sun, which can scorch the leaves.

  • Temperature: Maintain a warm environment with temperatures between 60°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C). Avoid exposure to cold drafts and temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

  • Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels slightly dry. Reduce watering in the winter when the plant’s growth slows.

  • Humidity: These plants are adaptable to average indoor humidity levels. They can thrive in a range of humidity conditions.

  • Soil: Use well-draining potting mix to prevent overwatering. A mix for tropical plants or general-purpose potting soil is suitable.

  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop feeding in the fall and winter.

  • Pruning: Trim the plant to maintain its shape and remove leggy growth as needed. Pinching back the tips can promote bushier growth.

  • Pests and Diseases: Monitor for common houseplant pests like spider mites, aphids, or mealybugs. Treat any issues promptly. Good airflow can help prevent fungal problems.

  • Propagation: Tradescantia zebrina is easily propagated through stem cuttings. Simply cut a healthy stem and place it in water or directly into soil.

  • Repotting: Repot when the plant becomes root-bound, typically every 2-3 years. Choose a slightly larger pot with drainage holes.

Tradescantia zebrina’s vibrant and eye-catching foliage makes it a delightful addition to your indoor plant collection. By following these care instructions, you can help it thrive, maintain its stunning appearance, and add a touch of color to your living space.
