Tradescantia spathacea

Also referred to as Moses in the Cradle, this plant is easy to take care of and grows quickly. It has sword-shaped leaves that are dark green on top, and a deep purple underneath. This adds a heroic splash of color to any space.

Medium to bright indirect light. A few hours of direct sun is great.

SM: ~8-10" tall and a 4" pot.
MD: ~10-12" tall and a 6" pot.

Pro-tip: This plant is semi-drought tolerant, and you should err on the drier side in the winter. 

  • No sweat
  • Bright indirect light
  • Toxic to pets
  • Every week

Oyster Plant

Plant appears healthy, nice size !!!

Delivery took a little longer than I expected, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the plant doesn’t suffer any ill effects due to it.

I would recommend Rooted !!! I already ordered another plant 🪴.
