GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Tradescantia is a genus of 75 species of herbaceous perennial wildflowers in the family Commelinaceae.
  • It is native to the New World from southern Canada to northern Argentina, including the West Indies.
  • Members of the genus are known by the common names wandering Jew or spiderwort.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Standard houseplant potting mix but will do even better if you give them soil that has more organic matter.
  • Allow good draining ability.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Use a water-soluble fertilizer at least twice a month during the growing season.
  • Be sure to dilute it down to 50% strength to avoid nutrient burn on the foliage.
  • You can also use a slow-release fertilizer to the soil once a year.​

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • It thrives in bright but indirect sunlight.
  • The brighter the light you provide your wandering jew plant, the more flowers it will produce.
  • If it’s not getting enough light, the brightly-colored foliage will begin to fade.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Keeping the soil evenly moist is the best.
  • You’ll know it’s ready for more water when the soil is dry to at least 1/2″ deep.
