Tradescantia zebrina, commonly known as Inch Plant or Wandering Jew, is a popular trailing houseplant that originates from Mexico and Central America. Tradescantia zebrina is a versatile and resilient plant that can be grown in hanging baskets or as a trailing plant on shelves and tabletops. With its striking foliage and ease of care, it adds a touch of vibrancy to any indoor space. Below are some information and care tips for Tradescantia zebrina:

  • Light: Inch Plant thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much direct sun can cause the leaves to burn. In lower light conditions, the foliage may lose its vibrant coloration.
  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. During winter, reduce watering frequency.
  • Humidity: This plant appreciates higher humidity levels, but it can adapt to average room humidity. Mist the leaves occasionally or place a tray of water nearby to increase humidity.
  • Fertiliser: Feed your Inch Plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
