Botanical name: Tradescantia Zebrina
The trailing stems make it perfect choice for growing in hanging baskets, but it's also stunning when allowed to spread across a tabletop or other surface.This is a houseplant that really thrives in bright but indirect sunlight. The brighter the light you provide your wandering jew plant, the more flowers it will produce. If it’s not getting enough light, the brightly-colored foliage will begin to fade. It is native to Mexico, South America, and Central America.
Partial shade, some sun; bright but no direct sun light.
Water thoroughly, discarding excess of water. Allow soil to dry out slightly before watering.
These plants need some care. Fertilize bimonthly.
Toxic to pets.
