Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

As an indoor plant, Tradescantia zebrina thrives in bright, indirect light, although it can tolerate lower light conditions. Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season, but allow it to dry out slightly between waterings during the cooler months to prevent root rot.

Regular pruning helps maintain its compact growth habit and encourages new growth. With proper care, it typically reaches a size of around 30cm in height and spread. This trailing plant is well-suited for hanging baskets or placed on elevated surfaces to showcase its cascading foliage, adding a vibrant touch to indoor spaces.

Expert Tip

If the plant gets too leggy, it will not mind being pruned back hard. Put the cut stems in water until they form roots before potting up.
