About the Wandering Jew Plant

Named aptly after its habit of growing rapidly and unchecked and wandering to the ends of the earth if left to its own devices.

Very easy to care for, these easy growers are the perfect fit for your bright corners.

All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended

Plants growing in containers need more fertilizing than those in the ground. The more you water, the more quickly you flush the nutrients out of the soil.

Plant Essentials

Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:Fertilise your Tradescantia with a generic plant fertiliser once every 20-24 days for a good growth.
Repotting : The wandering jew does not require frequent repotting but as it grows the lower leaves die out in time. Take cuttings from the tip and propagate when that starts happening.
Propogation : To propagate tradescantia, take cutting from the tip (4-5 inches long) and remove the lowest leaves. Either propagate it in clean water or plant it in a moist well-draining soil. Take care to cover the leaf nodes under water or under the soil.

Common Problems

1. Why is my wander jew losing variegation?
The wandering jew might lose variegation if kept in low light. Move it to a brighter corner for new variegated leaves.
2. Why are the older leaves of my wandering jew browning?
That’s just how the plant grows. If you feel the initial growth has become too sparse, take cuttings and propagate for a fuller foliage.
3. Why are the tip of my wandering jew wilting?
The tips of the plant are cup shaped with new leaves sprouting every now and then. If any water get lodged in the depression at the time of watering the top starts to rot. Take care to water properly.
