Watering and Fertilizing
Don’t ever let your plant get too dry, especially in winter. To keep soil evenly moist, a regular watering schedule is best. Water until water drains through the bottom of the pot, taking care that your plant won’t sit in water. Tradescantia thrives in humidity, and they love regular misting.
