This grey-green and pale purple Tradescantia (not frost hardy) rapidly produces long trailing stems, and gradually turns a darker purple when well established in a sunny position. This plant requires a little shade, as prolonged direct sunlight turns the leaves glassy. Too much shade (deep shade) will result in weak growth and the leaves reverting back to back to green. Allow to dry slightly over Winter, water frequently Summer,although can go dry between watering (2/3 wks. max.)
The green hanging pot in the photo is for display only, the plant itself is planted in a 1Litre sized plastic pot to be potted on by the buyer, when they so choose to do.
Easy to grow.
