Plant Care Needs

• ☀: Thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Can tolerate some direct sunlight, particularly in the morning or late afternoon, but avoid prolonged exposure to intense sun.

• 💦: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water less frequently in winter.

• 🪨: Well-draining potting mix is essential. Use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite for optimal drainage. We recommend The Mix, Luxuriously Moist, or a combination of both! 

• 🌡️: Prefers average room temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Protect from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.

• ☁️: Adaptable to normal indoor humidity levels but benefits from occasional misting to increase humidity, especially in dry indoor environments.

• ✂: Easily propagated from stem cuttings. Cut a healthy stem below a node and place it in water or moist potting mix until roots develop.

• ⚖: Low maintenance. Suitable for beginners and experienced gardeners alike.

• 💭:

  • Prune regularly to maintain the plant’s shape and to encourage bushier growth. Pinch off leggy stems to promote new growth.
  • Clean the leaves periodically with a damp cloth to remove dust and maintain their vibrant color.
  • Tradescantia Purple Heart is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of pets and children.
  • The trailing stems of Tradescantia Purple Heart can be trimmed to control growth or propagated to create new plants.
