The beautiful contrast of the patterned, shimmering leaves of the Tradescantia Zebrina on a rusty, old looking planter make for a cool aesthetic and a gift with a difference! Note: the planter is new, made from iron with a rust effect finish and has no drainage hole.

Tradescantia Zebrina is often referred to, like other Tradescantia varieties, by the common name, Wandering Jew. A ground growing plant in the wild, it is a popular houseplant because of its beautiful purple and silver trailing foliage. It’s a great choice for bringing colour to a corner at home.

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.
