Also known as inch plant and spiderwort, the Quadricolour is a stunning variety of Tradescantia fluminensis with shades of pink, purple, cream and green in its small leaves. It’s the kind of plant that can supplement softness, colour and appeal to any space.
All Tradescantias need plenty of indirect light to retain its variegation. As it is a fairly easy-going plant, the Wandering Jew can cope with rare occasions of droughts or overwatering. However, to avoid this unhealthy approach, set a regular watering schedule making sure the top inch of the plant’s soil is dry before giving it a good drink.
The leaves of a Wandering Jew are almost succulent-like so humidity is not something to fuss about. But when leaves look shrivelled or brown tips start to appear, occasional misting will be good for the plant.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
