Your Tradescantia prefers bright indirect light to direct light. Insufficient light will cause the foliage to fade.
Water your Tradescantia when the top 50%-75% of soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
Your bathroom or kitchen would be a great choice for your Tradescantia because it does best in a slightly more humid environment. Feel free to mist your plant frequently. If the humidity is too low the leaves will start to brown.
Your Tradescantia will do great in average room temperatures between 60-80°F.
Feed monthly in the spring through fall with a general-purpose indoor plant fertilizer diluted to half strength. Before applying fertilizer in any form, make sure the soil is damp.
Your Tradescantia is mildly toxic to humans and pets. Ingestion may cause mouth and stomach irritation.
Pinching back the long vines encourages branching and increases the fullness of the plant. To do this, simply ‘pinch’ off at a joint or at the tender new growth at the end of the stem.
