Tradescantia is a versatile houseplant that can be grown in a hanging basket to show off it's trailing nature or kept contained and compact in a pot. It can also be used as an annual in summer containers. This variety of wandering jew has tiny purple leaves. They like bright light and like lots of water during the summer months. Cut back on the watering during the winter months since the growth will slow down and the need for water will be greatly reduced.
