- Tradescantia is a genus of 75 species of herbaceous perennial wildflowers in the family Commelinaceae.

- Tradescantia Nanouk (Tradescantia albiflora ‘Nanouk’), also known as Fantasy Venice, is a special type of spiderwort plant that’s become a must-have for plant lovers.
- Pink, white, purple, and green stripes pattern its lush leaves on upright stems.
- Under the right conditions, it can grow as a long trailing ivy, and you’ll even find small white and yellow flowers emerging from its pink buds during the growing season.
- This plant was specifically designed to be colorful, attractive, and easy to grow.
- Unlike other plants in the Tradescantia and Zebrina genera, Tradescantia Nanouk is unique in that it’s a patented plant, developed in the Netherlands in 2012.
- It originated in a program aiming to create a more vigorous, hardy Tradescantia with showier blooms.
- Standard houseplant potting mix but will do even better if you give them soil that has more organic matter.
- Allow good draining ability.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
