Tradescantia spathacea 'Sitara' - Mosses-in-the-cradle & pot combination

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 25cm (including pot)
  • Pot covers: comes with 14.5cm Leon granite style planter

    The foliage of this undemanding houseplant is variously striped with cream and green, and is flushed with pink - which is also the predominant colour on the lower surface of the leaves. It forms in a rosette, so looks very pretty when viewed from above - or from the side.

  • Home care: Make sure that it is in a bright spot but not in direct sun, with a constant average temperature no lower than 10°C in the winter. Watering is simple, -water well in the growing season from spring to autumn, then reduce watering in the winter when the plant's growth has slowed down. You can mist the leaves occasionally in a hot summer.
