Albofittata (Tradescantia Fluminenses)

Plant Care Instructions*


The oval-shaped foliage of the Fluminensis is green in color and has a glossy look. The leaves attach to fleshy stems, and the stem nodes quickly put roots down into the soil, allowing for the rapid spread and growth of the plant in ideal growing conditions. This wandering Jew species features white flowers.

Plant Care*:

Average indoor temperatures of 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) are suitable, and no lower than 50ºF (10ºC).

Enough light is vital for this plant to grow well, and prevent spindly growth. South or East facing rooms are best without too much direct sun (some direct sun is appreciated).

Water thoroughly from April - October keeping the soil moist - and then much less during November - March.

A well-draining peat based potting mix is suitable. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite can be used.

Feed from April - October with a balanced diluted fertilizer every 2 weeks.

Re-pot once the plant has outgrown its present container or every 2 years.

Average indoor humidity should be fine. To improve humidity, mist the leaves frequently with plain water.

* Standard care recommendations - you may need to adjust based on your home or office environment.
