Wandering Dude | Tradescantia zebrina

Latin Name: Tradescantia zebrina
Plant height (inc. pot) - Pot width

This really is a colourful specimen, striking leaves of purple, shades of green and silver. The trailing habit of this plant gives a cascade of colour to any environment, maximizing on limited available space. That said, it will eventually trail to reach an ultimate size of up to 2 metres and be generally very large. We find they do best when hung up and left to trail freely through the air.

If it does get a bit large, you can clip it back without harming the rest of the plant. These clippings can then be placed into new soil (look for the nodes, which can be formed into roots with time in moist soil) to grow into a completely new plant.

These cuttings grow remarkably quickly, so from one plant in a few years you can literally fill a room up with the shimmering purple brilliance of these charming vines. 

UK Grown right here in Sussex and sold in our environmentally-friendly, recycled pots made out of old computer parts.
