Tradescantia Plant Care Tips & Guide

Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur.

Sun: Direct & Indirect

Tradescantia Nanouk prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially in the morning or late afternoon, but prolonged exposure to harsh sunlight can scorch its leaves. Aim to provide it with bright, filtered light to keep it happy and healthy.

Light: Medium - Bright

Consistent, moderate light is ideal for Tradescantia Nanouk. Avoid placing it in low-light conditions, as this can lead to leggy growth and diminished vibrancy in its foliage. On the other hand, too much direct sunlight can cause its leaves to become sunburned or faded.

Water: When half dry

Tradescantia Nanouk prefers evenly moist soil, but it's essential not to overwater it. Allow the top inch or two of soil to dry out between waterings, and then water thoroughly, ensuring that excess water drains away from the pot. During the growing season (spring and summer), you may need to water more frequently than in the winter months when growth slows down.

Humidity: Medium

While Tradescantia Nanouk can tolerate average indoor humidity levels, it appreciates slightly higher humidity if possible. You can increase humidity around the plant by misting it regularly, placing a humidifier nearby, or placing a tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the pot. However, be cautious not to let the plant's leaves remain wet for extended periods, as this can invite fungal diseases.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Tradescantia Nanouk has moderate toxicity and may induce adverse reactions if ingested by pets. It is advisable to prevent your pets from consuming it, as is recommended for all plants. The severity of the reaction depends on the amount ingested. However, if your pet typically does not show interest in consuming plants, Tradescantia Nanouk can still be a suitable addition to your home.

Pro Tip

During the active growing season in spring and summer, nourish your Tradescantia Nanouk monthly with a diluted, balanced liquid fertilizer. Although requiring minimal upkeep, occasional pinching of stem tips promotes compactness. Pruning aids in fostering a bushier growth habit and prevents legginess. Ensure ample bright light to sustain the plant's health and deter it from becoming sparse.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
