Care

Light: Thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light levels but will have more vibrant leaf coloration with brighter light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Prefers consistently moist soil. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure thorough watering, allowing the excess water to drain away. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.

Soil: Prefers well-draining soil. A good potting mix for this plant is a combination of regular potting soil and perlite or coarse sand to enhance drainage.

Fertilization: Tradescantia 'Pistachio White' benefits from regular fertilization during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength every 2-4 weeks. This will provide the necessary nutrients for healthy growth.

Humidity: Can tolerate average indoor humidity levels. However, it appreciates higher humidity. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves or placing a tray of water near the plant.

Temperature: Tradescantia 'Pistachio White' prefers average to warm temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but should be protected from drafts and temperature fluctuations.

Propagation: Easy to propagate! You can propagate it through stem cuttings. Cut a healthy stem just below a node and remove the lower leaves. Place the cutting in a glass of water or directly into moist potting soil. Roots will develop within a few weeks, and then you can transplant the cutting into its own pot.

Blooms: Produces small, three-petaled flowers that are typically purple or pink in color. However, it is primarily grown for its vibrant foliage, and the flowers are not the main feature of this plant.
