Tradescantia Zebrina is prized for its easy-care nature and colourful foliage of silver, purple and green to brighten up any room. Zebrina make a wonderful hanging or trailing indoor plant. Pinch out the tips to create a bushier plant.
Thrives on very bright, indirect light and high humidity. A bathroom or kitchen would be a great space for Zebrina because it does best in a slightly more humid environment. Otherwise, feel free to mist your plant frequently!
Keep the soil moist, as it is best not to let your Zebrina become too dry. Water when the top inch of soil is dry and be sure to water the soil underneath the leaves. Don’t worry if you forget once in a while—it will occasionally tolerate a missed watering.
Be careful, this plant is toxic to people and pets.
Our Zebrina comes in a 12cm nursery pot and a little care guide card. Feel free to email us with any questions!
