A fast growing, low maintenance plant, the Tradescantia also displays stunning foliage, making it another popular choice.
Tradescantia requires high light to retain its variegated colouring. Although tolerant of water conditions, underwatering will restrict growth. Due to succulent like leaves, humidity is not a concern unless the leaves start to brown.
In warmer temperatures, this plant will grow quickly and tends to vine outwards, however regular pruning will allow it to be kept neat and compact.
