Regular price $4.00 Sale


The Tradescantia zebrina, also known as the purple inch plant (and formerly known as "Wandering Jew"), is an easygoing houseplant with beautiful, shimmery purple and silver leaves. The Tradescantia zebrina eventually grows long, perky, vining arms which cascade gracefully over the edge of the pot.

When you receive your cutting, remove it from the packaging immediately.

Un-rooted cuttings should be placed in a glass or jar of water as soon as possible. Make sure that nodes (the spot where the leaf meets the stem and aerial roots form) are below the level of the water, and place in bright, indirect light. Change and refresh water 2-3 times per week.

Allow roots to become several inches long and well established before transferring to well drained potting soil. This may take anywhere from several weeks to several months depending on season, conditions, and what type of plant you are propagating.

Rooted cuttings may be planted into soil immediately, or may live happily in water for several weeks.
