How to Love Your Mini Tradescantia
Keep my soil evenly moist from April to October. Let it dry slightly from November to March.
I won’t mind being forgotten or overwatered from time to time as long as you don’t make it a habit.
I like to stay relatively moist but never wet: if you want to be extra careful, water from the bottom,
or use a self-watering pot.
My leaves will hang limp when I'm thirsty. They will perk right back up when you give me a few sips of water!
I enjoy very early or very late sun, but be sure to keep me away from direct sunlight: too much can result in fading color.
Exposure to at least six hours daily is best, I need all the light I can get! The ideal location is an East or West-facing window. You can expose me to artificial light if needed.
I will let you know if I am not getting enough light: my bracts will hang limp and I will lean toward the light.
Use a liquid plant fertilizer
(20-5-10) every two weeks. Feed from April to October only.
A night time temperature
of 18°C (65°F)
is ideal. I am susceptible to dramatic changes
