The Tradescantia Purpusii is otherwise known as a Silver Inch Plant.
CONDITIONS: Native to Mexico, Central America and Colombia.
LIGHT: Thrives in bright, indirect light.
WATER: Wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering, avoid over-watering as this can cause root rot. This plant enjoys humid conditions, so frequent misting is a must.
Care: To encourage further growth, pinch any thin or spindly tips.
PETS: No snacking. This plant is harmful to cats and dogs if digested.
FACT: Pruning and grooming is an important part of caring for your Tradescantia, feel free to give it a trim if it looks tired or bushy.

It’s not just our products that are green. 95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%, it’s just the pesky plastic top from our ‘anti-roll system’ left to replace). As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price but at least we sleep well at night!
Size: W15cm x H34cm
