3.5" Tradescantia Zebrina aka Inch Plant

The Tradescantia Zebrina loves bright light and can handle some sun from an East facing window. If the leaves turn too green then the plant is asking for more light, is happy to go outside but no direct sun. When the top 1" of the soil is dry water thoroughly so you see the water drain out the bottom, don't let it sit in water but this guy can actually withstand an overwater. Will flower briefly in the spring in summer! Toxic to pets.

Tradescantia Zebrina comes in a 3.5" plastic growers pot, plant height ranges 5" - 6" tall from the base of the pot.



Overview

Tradescantia, named after John Tradescant, a famous 17th century plant-hunter who’s job would make any Millennial green with envy, is also known by its many other names: Spiderwort, Spider-Lily, Cradle-Lily, Oyster-Plant and Flowering Inch Plant. Originally native to the Americas – founded in wooded areas all the way from Canada down to Northern Argentina – they were brought back to Europe as ornamental plants. Today, you might spot some in a neighbour's yard who, if not in the know, might consider it a weed. A beautiful weed! Ideal for beginners, Tradescantias make for beautiful and easy-to-care houseplants with long stems that look even better when tucked into a hanging basket. You’ll encounter a variety of Tradescantia varieties that run the rainbow pride flag gamut: pink, purple, red, green, white, yellow and blue.
