GENERAL INFORMATION

  • InchPlant, also known as Tradescantia zebrina, is one of the easiest houseplants to grow.
  • It is best suited for hanging containers, and it needs a location with plenty of indirect natural light.
  • These plants can become leggy and scraggly with large sections of bare stems unless they are pinched back regularly to keep them bushy.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • This plant can well with ordinary potting soil if it is not over-watered, but prefers a soil that drains well.
  • Mixing a small amount of sand into commercial potting soil is ideal.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • The plant doesn't require much, if any, feeding.
  • At most, use a water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half-strength, applied bimonthly.
  • More aggressive feeding can cause the plant's leaves to lose their variegation.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • They do best in bright but indirect sun.
  • Without enough light, the variegation of the leaves begins to fade.
  • Too much sun, though, can cause the leaves to scorch.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • This plant does well if kept moist but not soggy.
  • It should be watered weekly in the summer, less frequently in the winter.
