20 Super-Easy Houseplants You'll Love
The trailing stems of tradescantias (Tradescantia spp.) change direction slightly at each node, giving the plant a zigzag look. Grow in mixed baskets, hanging baskets or as a groundcover under larger houseplants. Varietaged and purple-leaf types need bright light to maintain colors. Older plants become leggy and unkempt; replace them with new plants from rooted cuttings.
Size: To 4 - 12 inches high and 12 - 24 inches wide, trailing
Growing conditions: Medium to bright light; 55 - 75°F; moderately dry soil
